Scope and content

University of Cape Town. Dated 12 June 1922 - Thanks Frazer for his letter of congratulation and apologises for the delay in responding; is sending 'The Andaman Islanders'; is writing articles for journals rather than the large book on Australia he had hoped to publish; worries that [Wilhelm?] Bleek's daughter [Dorothea?] will not publish his work; have 12 students taking the first course in Social Anthropology; has plans for more students and an Anthropological Institute; the news of the death of Dr Rivers came as a shock.
