Howitt and Fison Papers


hw0060 J. G. Frazer to Miss Howitt 20 April 1908



of your Father and Mr Fison, andthey have accepted the proposal oncondition that I undertake tochoose and edit the papers and toprefix a biographical notice of theauthors. I am quite willing to do so. Macmillan would undertakeall the risks and expenses andwould divide the profits with theauthors' families, with whom inall pecuniary matters they woulddeal direct, not through me.Do you approve of this proposal?

If you do, and MrFison's family approves also, I would propose to include allthe papers mentioned by DrHowitt in the preface to his book (pp. VIII-IX) together with the followign papers:1) "Remarks on the Class Systemscollected by Mr Palmer", Journal ofthe Anthropological Institute [underlined], XIII(1884) pp. 335-346.2) "The Dieri", Journal of the Anthrop. Inst. XX (1891) pp. 30-104
