about 20 remain. Of those Aborigines taken to
Islands by Government, not more than five or six
belong to Wakelburra or Cowan burra - of the
natives taken from Central districts to Reserves, the most
were Terraburra - Yengaburra - the undermention [sic] tribes
(members) are all gone = Mutheraburra - once about 100 strong
Wandilla Burra (extinct) once about 80 strong
To your question = do you know [of - crossed out] any cases where
a fresh law, was made to suit such circumstances
meaning to allow a Kurgilla man to take others than a bao
woman. Answer No = At any time if I can help you
in your work I shall only be too pleased to do so
Though we only know one another by corresponding
Yet, your labours are not unknown to me
though the nearest we ever were to one another was
on the day the remains of the "ill fated Burke + Wills"
were being buried when you brought them in
from Coopers Creek = and your father's work "Exploreation [sic]
of Australia
" are among my valued books.
Hoping to soon hear that you are strong and
hale again, with good wishes
I Remain
Yours faithfully
J.C. Muirhead
