Canton Sept 22d 1886
My dear Father and Mother
It is Willie's birth day
and I will write and send
the good wishes which I know he
has for his Grandpa + Grandma at
Seville - He has several little presents
to make, him feel good among
other things a box of paints, and
some books - He is getting to be
quite a large boy and is a
very good boy and a comfort to
his parents and so is Richard.
We have been having quite
hot weather for a number of days
although it was cool the early part
of September--
We are Expecting to have the

pleasure of seeing [?Jed?] Muller here
sometime before long-- He is now
in Hong Kong giving lectures or
rather perhaps I should say holding
Evangelistic meetings. He is
intending to go to all the ports
of China I believe, or most of
them at any rate -and also
to Japan - He is an old man
to be going around the world in
this way 81 years old they say.
There has just been a death
in the Mission circle at hongkong
Mr Edge of the London Mission died
last week. He had only been out
from home a year since his
visit - I think he had been
out about ten years before that -- I
will not write more as time is limited. The letters
go to the office now Your Aff Son Henry



广州 1886 年 9 月 22 日
我亲爱的爸爸妈妈
这是威利的生日
我会写信寄
我认识他的美好祝愿
有他的爷爷和奶奶在
塞维利亚 - 他有几个小礼物
让他感觉很好
其他东西 一盒油漆,和
一些书-他正在成为
相当大的男孩,是一个
非常好的男孩和安慰
他的父母和理查德也是。
我们已经相当
连续几天高温天气
虽然早期很酷
九月——
我们期待拥有

很高兴在这里见到杰德穆勒
不久之后——他现在
在香港讲学或
或许我应该说持有
布道会。他是
打算去所有的港口
我相信中国的,或者大多数
无论如何——而且还有
去日本 - 他是个老人
环游世界
这样他们就说81岁了。
刚刚有一个死亡
在香港传道圈
伦敦传道会的埃奇先生去世
上周。他只是出去了
离家一年后
访问 - 我想他已经
在那之前大约十年——我
时间有限就不多写了。这些信
现在去办公室你的儿子亨利
