ANWYL RIENI, - Yr wyf yn cael pleser mawr wrth ysgrifenu at fy anwyl dad am mam y rhai am magodd yn gariadus ac am hyfforddodd ym mhen y ffordd dda.

Yr wyf yn diolch i Dduw am gael rhieni da, nid yn unig i ofalu am fwyd a dillad i mi, pan oeddwn yn ieuanc, ond hefyd, gofalasoch yn foreu am blanu egwyddorion y Grefydd Gristionogol yn fy meddwl - - nid nt byth yn anghof genyf; y lluaws aneirif o gynghorion a gefais genych y maent ar fy meddwl, ac o flaen fy llygad; y maent gwedi bod yn llesiol iawn i mi lawer gwaith; o ran fy mhrofiad crefyddol, nid wyf yn oer iawn, nac yn frwd iawn chwaith. Yr wyf yn cael pleser yn llwybrau crefydd yn barhus; fel hyn, rhwng gobaith ac ofnau, hyderu yr wyf y caf lanio i mewn ir Ganaan nefol yn y man. Gweddiwch drosof, am i mi gael dilyn siampl y Brenin mawr, a harddu ffyrdd crefydd yn anialwch y gorllewin llaith.

Yr ydym oll yn iach ac wrth ein bodd yn cael digon o fwyd a dillad, a digon o waith, a thl am dano. Cyfleusderau crefyddol yn aml, dwy waith yn yr wythnos, a phedair gwaith ar y Saboth. Ar y 4ydd dydd o Orphenaf, buom yn cadw cyfarfod dirwestol yn y coed, oddeutu tair milldir allan or dref, ymunodd 25 or newydd Er rhated yw y gwirodydd yma, y mae yn dda genyf dweyd, fod y Cymry bron i gyd yn Ddirwestwyr. Chwi welwch nad oes arnom eisieu dim daioni, pob peth bron fel y dymunem ef. Tywallted yr Arglwydd ei Ysbryd arnom, fel y teimlom ein tlodi fel pechaduriaid, ac y gweddom yn daer am faddeuan.

Rhoddaf ychydig o hanes fy nhaith i Missouri, Iowa ac Illinois. Ymadewais r dref hon ar y 7fed o Fawrth, gan fod y mate yn Gymro, cefais fynd yn llaw ar y llong, i lwytho a dad-lwytho; - nid oeddwn yn meddwl myned ymhellach n St Lewis, ond gan fod yr hn mor oer i fyned i Iowa, cychwynais ar y cyntaf o Ebrill tua Missouri, 600 milldir o daith; Gwelais lawer o Indiaid yn y coed - daeth amryw o honynt ir steam-boat. Pan oeddwn yn Llandyssil, clywais ddywedyd fod Indiaid Cymreig oddeutu afon Missouri. Pan oeddent yn ymddyddan u gilydd yr oeddwn yn gwneud clust i wrando pa iaith oeddent yn siarad, ond er fy siomedigaeth nid Cymraeg na Seisneg oedd ganddynt - eu dillad oedd o grwyn da gwylltion, yn lws fel mantell. Gwedi myned tua 600 o filldiroedd, aethum i bentref bychan, rhyfeddais yn fawr i weled rhai o ogledd Cymru yno; ond yn awr, yr wyf wedi cael ar ddeall fod rhai Cymry gwedi myned i bob parth yn y wlad hon, lle mae dynion gwynion gwedi myned. Yn mhen tair wythnos, dychwelais yn l i St Lewis, erbyn hyn yr oedd y Cymry a adewais yno, wedi mynd i spio Iowa; cynnygodd Cadben Jones, brawd Jones, gweinidog Rhydybont, i mi fyned ar ei lestr ef, i fynu 150 o filldiroedd a hyd yr afon Desmoin, ond nid aethum. Aeth Cymro or enw Roberts, a minnau, oddeutu pump neu chwech cant o filldiroedd ar hŷd afon Mississipi, i Geluna a Debuke; yno y cyfarfum thri or Cymry, rhai fuant yn edrych ansawdd Iowa - ni chefais fawr o air ganddynt ir wlad; yr oeddynt yn gweled gormod o dir noeth (prairie) yno, a rhy fach o goed - ai bod yn anghyfleus iawn i farchnata, felly dychwelodd yr yspiwyr yn l, bob un idd ei hen drigfan; - bm yn gweithio yno am bedair wythnos; yr oeddwn yn myned ir cwrdd ar y Sabboth i Geluna - yr oedd yno bregethau da iawn, er nad oeddent yn iaith fy mam, yr oeddwn yn eu deall yn bur dda; dychwelodd tri o honom i St Lewis. Ar ein taith laniasom i mewn i dre or enw Navoor, lle mae Joe Smith, y Mormont, ai ganlynwyr; nid oes ond tair blynedd er pan sefydlwyd y lle, ac y mae tua 25,000 or Mormoniaid yno yn barod. Yn ddiweddar yr oedd Joe yn myned i wneyd gwyrthiau i dwyllo y bobl, trwy gerdded wyneb y dwfr yn y nos gosododd fath o ffwrwmau thraed iddynt, ac oddeutu troedfedd rhyngddynt a wyneb yr afon - ond daeth rhyw walch i wybod y peth, a thỳnodd un or ffwrwmau i ffwrdd; - boreu dranoeth daeth lluoedd i weled y wyrth, dechreuodd Joe gerdded yn hwylus, gan feddwl croesi yn ddiangol, ond yn ddisymmwth aeth dros ei ben ir gwaelod. Rhyfedd mor barod yw dynion i ddiystyru Mab Duw, a chanlyn cyfeiliornwyr. Clywais fod Joe yn y carchar; bm fis o amser yn St Lewis. Yr oedd y Pabyddion yn aml ym mhob man lle buais i; ond yr oedd y Presbyteriaid, ar Bedyddwyr, ar Wesleyaid yn amlach, ac yn enill tir yn gyflymach. Dywedaf om calon, llwydd iddynt i gael yr holl gyfeiliornadau ir llawr, ac enw y Gŵr a hoeliwyd elo yn ben moliant trwy yr holl fyd. Eich serchiadol fab,
John Griffiths
