Our Governor Sir James
Ferguson
sent it. In
making up this table I
noticed that the languages
might be classified by
the characteristics of their
pronouns. One class such as
ours here having mono-
syllabic pronouns while
another class of which the
Port Phillip blacks would
be representatives have
pollysyllabic [sic] pronouns.
Murrumbeek. I & so on.
I think that in this
difference of pronouns we
have an evidence of
difference in race.
Some tribes are pure
of the one race, and some
pure of the other, and
others formed of a
mixture of the two races.
Any one who has resided
long with natives will
have noticed the striking
difference there is in
the contour of face
