These [are - crossed out] is the list of marriages + descent
formulated

In I [and II- crossed out]
[The table seems to require- crossed out] the
interpolation of the marriage of
Aa3 -re Mukulo - Ipai - opossum
seems to be required
and in II the marriages of
Ab3 ie Mukulo-Kumbo opossum

Please observe the symmetry of these
marriages in the run of numbers
Bc5+6+Bd4 in both Aa1+Aa2
and Bc4+Bd5+6 in Ab1 and Ab2

In III and IV the symmetry is
wanting and the suggestion is
perhaps by the following observation:
Usually such marriages are reciprocal
that is as Ipai Mallee Hen marries Kubbitha
Black Duck, so does Kubbi Black Duck
marry Ipatha Mallee Hen

Now this is seen in numbers of the
cases in your list but please consider
the following: Aa2 marries Bc5 (I) - but
Bc5 is not shown to marry Aa2.
Again Ab1 marries Bd5 (II) but
Bd5 is not shown to marry Ab1
[again - crossed out] and so on with others
Ab3 Ab3 Ab3 aqre not reciprocal
Bd4 Bd5 Bd6
In II, VII and VIII Aa3 Ipai or
Ipatha opossum is shown but
there is no reciprocity. There are
similar cases in IX, X, XI.
