Will: "I haue composed a booke and do bestowe vpon each of my sonns in Law a booke as their best legacy beseeching the heauenly father to instruct them & my daughters chiefly in the holy scriptures & vsing that help as a means for the Lord to vnderstand the scriptures, & the Lord God by his good Spirit bless the holy scriptures, & this helpe of their ffather & the publique ministry & any sound bookes of instruction | and I doubt not soe that my booke will giue them an hint of all sound doctrine: and an hint of all false & vnworthy doctrine. ... As for my bookes & writings: I giue my son Holyoke all the bookes that are at Lynn: as also the yron chest. And the bookes I haue in my study that are mr Broughtons works I giue him: he only can make vse of them: & like wise I giue him all my manuscripts whatsoever: & I giue him that large new Testamt in folio wth wast[e] pap[er] betweene euery leafe that I give him.
