Bethesda Kopperamana P.O. 27th June 1885

A.W. Howitt Esqr.

Dear Sir,

I am sorry having delayed the answer of your questions so long, but as I have been for a considerable time away from home I was unable to reply before this.

In seperat [sic] parcel you will find your questions answered and I hope they will assist you in your work.

You may find it strange that the Dieri have no Scars or paintmarks to distinguish themselves from others but I have made very close inquiries and could obtain no further information on the subject.

I have seen Mr. Gason's book relating to the Dieri Tribe and have found that his description of the Castums [sic], Manners, etc of the Dieri as very near the mark so that no one could add much more to it.

I remain Dar Sir Yours Faithfully C.A. Meyer
