The Will Of The Lives.

I myself say the true, that what I have or that belongs to me will now be his of his own, Lyman Baken, of things as theirs. One house, all or whole of the allotment, all the money and all the furniture within the house. After I am dead and gone these are all belong to Lyman Baken and to do anything with it as he see fit.

I have made will before witness as these things to be true. I have spoken these words myself.

John 3: 16 - 18:
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son (Jesus Christ), that
whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the
world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not
condemned; but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believeth in the name of
the only begotten Son of God.
