This document comprises 22 handwritten pages of declaration, statements and acknowledgment of gifts. The text of the 21 declarations is virtually identical. Only the names of the donors and the date of the meeting of the parties are different. With the exception of the first declaration – listing the donee at Carolyn M. Layton, and the amount given as $12,500 – the donees are listed as Jim and Marceline Jones, and the amount of the donation is $20,000. Carol A. Stahl witnessed each, except for the statement of herself and her husband, which was witnessed by Timothy O. Stoen.
The text – with the slight variations – reads:
Declaration Acknowledgment of Gifts
We, the undersigned, are husband and wife and are referred to herein as donors. We first met Carolyn M. Layton of Ukiah California hereinafter referred to as donee, in January 1965 – From that time until the present we have periodically made irrevocable cash gifts out of our community property funds to Carolyn M. Layton. These gifts were made out of love and affection for her and in the deep knowledge and belief that such gifts would and will be used as she sees fit for humanitarian good.
No tax deductions were claimed by us of any of these gifts, and no restrictions were put on the use of these funds by said donee.
The total amount of these gifts by us to said donee has exceeded twelve thousand five hundred dollars ($12,500.00). These gifts were spread out so that during no calendar year did the amount of such gifts exceed $3000 to said donee from either one of us.
I declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct.
The donors are:
