but he would have no difficulty in getting
a wife as the totem would be his guide.
As the intermarriage of Ipai and Kubbitha
obtains [all - crossed out] almost universally where
the Kamilaroi organisation prevails
it would I daresay be best to stick
to them as the intermarrying classes.

I am sure that in many cases
consanguinous marriages are not approved
even where tribal law might permit.
I am sorry I can't give you the exact relation-
ship between Nellie Matha wilduck [sic] and
Scotty Murri black duck.

Before receiving your letter I had
written to "Science of Man" on the subject
as I received a communication from the Editor.

I am sure you will be glad to be
relieved from your official duties and
will now have more time to devote to your
anthropological work and I await
with great interest the publication of
your book. If you ever see Mr Fison
kindly remember me to him; it was through
a letter from him in the Australasian
to me five and thirty years ago that I first
became interested in Aboriginal matters.
I am yours faithfully
