From Jan van Bolhuis   [13 November 1879]

M!

What must we believe over the orig〈in〉 of men? The doctrine of the bible in 〈ge〉nesis 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 Divini1 | at Lichtenvoorde prov. Gelderland Nederland
