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
