2copies of your Dieri grammarto pay for bringing it out.For instance I am now £150 out of pocket by publishing my book"Kamilaroi + Kurnai"; andI cannot tell when the copies will all be sold.

I think the best plan withyour grammar would be to[requ present it to - crossed out] ask one of the learned societies either inAdelaide, Melbourne, London, Parisor [Berlin]] to publish it. If you thought well ofit I could, I think, do this for oyuwith the Royal Society of Melbourne,the Anthropological Institute of London, or the "EthnologischeInsitut" of Berlin. It is usualin such cases for the Author toreceive some 20 copies for himselfand he of course becomes knownto scientific men all over the world. If you like this plan I shall havemuch pleasure in carefully goingthrough [the - crossed out] Dieri grammar so as tomake a few suggestions which might

[written in right side margin]meet with your approvalIf you prefer bringing out the grammaryourself I should if course not make any use of it myself.

I thought the paper should go in the first instance.4) To selected members of the Societed'Anthropoligie of Paris and of the Berlin Gesellschaft für Anthropologie (in addition tothose included under No. 3)

But the number of copies printed didnot suffice to send ot all themembers of the Berlin Gesellschaftfür Anthropologie whose names Ihad selected, and for the samereason none were sent to the selectedmembers of the Vienna Anthropological Society. The number of anthropo-logists whom I had selected toreceive them because the copies wereexhausted, was 24 or 25. I do not think the omission is serious,because I think most of thepersons chiefly concerned receivedcopies under head No. 3. Stillwhen you come to print yourpapers in the Journal of the Anthropological Institute, I would recommend you to somewhat increase the number
