Palyan said by Thomas to be brother to Bunjil
+ ruler of sea made two women to match
Bunjil's 2 men [made - crossed out]
What about Bunjil making one of the
men lighter than the others, and giving
them curly or straight respectively?
What about Djent Djent and Thara pursuing
Waa when he stole the fire from the Karai
gūrk? Thomas says Thara came back
with it that Djurt Djurt was buried to death
into mountain called munnid munis and was
after made by Bunjil into a star which glows
like fire.

At a gathering south of Yarra Goulburn, Mt
Macedon
, Barrabool Yarra a Western Port
tribes were present. Some Goulburn women
quite naked stole behind [some - crossed out] young men
and placed their hands on their heads
no soon was this done than the men became
quite helpless and insensible when a
lock of hair was taken from the head
of each with their head ornaments.

Next morning the drs had them carried
to the fire by 2 friends each. Then they scraped
their hair off from head to feet - singing
finally rubbed them all over with red ochre
