Essendon [Aug - crossed out] Sept 5, '06

Mt dear HowittMany thanks for your reprint fromthe "Fortnightly". I congratulate you on it, +should be very indignant with Andrew Lang,if he were worth being angry with. He is beneathcontempt, + I told Frazer so when I was writingto him the other day. Spencer expressed mostadmirably my own opinion in his last letter to me.He said "Lang is an ethnologic charlatan, whocares nothing for the truth, but only forsome theory or other which he is occupying himselfwith for the tine being."

I look forward eagerly to your remarkson Lang's absurd "Secret of the Totem", + yourfurther exposure of his dishonesty, in thepaper you were kind enough to show me.

I must stop. My head is throbbing sore.

With kindest regards + best wishes to youall, from all of us.Ever yoursL. Fison

P.S. The girls say, "Kind regards indeed! Give him our love!" And Mrs F says, "Certainly!" Lottie wishes meto tell May that she will send her a letter soon.
