[?Marry according?] to these [cashes - crossed out] cases
which I investigated and followed
out through six [possible - crossed out] past or existing or future
generations. It is said that in olden times
this was not permitted but that since
white men have come into the country the
rules have become so relaxed that cases
have occurred where persons have been
permitted to mary who were tribal
brother and sister that is to say where their
relatives to each other were those of Wal
or djadjt or galaka - although their parents
were not the same individuals - in one
such case, both were Garchuka - but
each had a different sub totem and
theirs was held not to be the same,
a flesh and the old people permitted
the marriage.
