Lichtenvoorde prov. Gelderland Nederland

M!

What must we believe over the origin of men? The doctrine of the bible in genesis or your doctrine of the descent from animal? Because I have read over your interest to the Christian mission I am very desiring to know or you stick to your fallible doctrine— or to the Word of the Lord. Will me do the kindness to answer me.

The grace of the Lord with you!

J. Van Bolhuis | Minister Verbi Deimi | at Lichtenvoorde prov. Gelderland Nederland
