To the Editor of the Academy

I regret the necessity for renewing this
correspondence. Mr Lang in his letter which
appeared in your issue of the 13th October,
has gone off on a small issue of a misplaced
comma, altogether disregarding the more
serious issue raised by my question as to the
four selected parts, of my summary, which
he rearranged and termed "a passage from
Mr Howitt" (Secret of the Totem p. 197)

It seems to me that it would be well
for Mr Lang's credit if he replied to my
question, because that so called "passage", on
the face of it, carried an unpleasant
suggestion of manipulation, for it was
used as the grounds for [charging - crossed out] a charge against me of
[with -crossed out] overlooking my own facts. (Secret of the
p. 199)

I remain Sir
yours faithfully
A W Howitt
Metung Victoria
28 November 1906
