with the [.........] side of the Aborigines
question I remember writing you about
the Unghi tribe located between the Maranoa
and Warrego and that they called themselves
Ipai, Kumbo etc and and also Oorjilla, Kuberu etc.
You suggested they were probably on the border
land dividing Ipai lot from the Oorjilla.
Not long since I met a Mr H.S. Wills son of
Horatio Wills who was murdered. He told me
that 200 miles north of the Unghi the words
Ipai Kumbo were unknown and they
were all Oorjilla Kuberu. We compared a lot
of words and there was an extraordinary
resemblance, a great many words being almost
exactly the same.

Wish you a pleasant Xmas

Yours faithfully
