Cummie. (cousin) as they are considered Blood Relation

You seem to thorou-ghly understand my meaning as to Blood Relationship, by your notes in your last letter, and as you say it is diffacult [sic], to make the public understand the word Blood Relationship, but as you seem now to clearly grasp the relation-ship of the Dieyerie, you will have no diffaculty [sic] in explaining more fully than I have done to you - of course Mother, Father, Sister, Brother come under Blood Relationship, (Booyooloo)as the cousins - as mentioned above Page 8. -

Question of the exact relationship of the women who places the Cooireround the Boys' neck, She is not [2 words underlined] of the same murdoo, nor any relationship whatever
