Lake Tyers
Jan 11th 1878

My dear Mr Howitt
I have made enquiries about
marriage of Blacks + send you
the result.
It appears to me there is no
strict law against marrying
in any tribe. I find in asking
them for instance when the
Bul Butta got wives + the
women husbands they mainly
give instances of marriage
in the quarters indicated
but at the same time they
express themselves as being able
to get wives anywhere.
I see you apply the term
Kani as the description of a
tribe. I think the term is used
