Scope and content

24 Ladbroke Gardens, Notting Hill, W. Dated 13 July, 1904 - Thanks him for his letter and continues the discussion of the belief in the tribal all father, including mention of the 'mungan-ngaur' among the Kurnai; regrets he did not discuss this matter with [Baldwin] Spencer and does not see why Frazer should excuse Spencer's letter; his daughter [Mary] has been helping him go over the proofs but is sure there will be something overlooked when they receive the revise; with a page with an addition to the text [of his book 'The Native Tribes of South East Australia'] about the all father.
