Messages When I gave old Bob the Turndun which had called the Kurnai together I marked it with 6 notches as the number of "boys" it had made into men. I carefully wrapped it up so that no one would see what it was. He said that when he got back to the Wimmera he should give it to the old "King" of the Tathara who would shew it to his people. He would then send it to the old "King" at Condah, who would shew it to his people; he would then send it back to Bob who would shew it to the old "King" at Morton Plains (Dr [??]) These old men would gather their people together and when that he was done he should send me news. He said "Black fellow always do like it this way." He further said that his people did not knock out teeth like the Murray Blacks but only tied cord round the boys arms. But that he and the other old men know what a Bourbŭng was and would [?have?] up the Murray Blacks to help make it. Feb 26/89
