Clovelly, Metung, Victoria. Dated 22 April, 1902 - Is sending a copy of a chapter of his book and asks for his comments; is living in a cottage at the Gippsland Lakes, and is happy to think he has a duplicate if fire strikes his cottage; hopes to finish 'Native Tribes of South Eastern Australia' by the end of this year; hears that [Baldwin] Spencer is looking well after his return from his expedition; is waiting for [Andrew] Lang's 'Magic and Realism' before saying anything; a recent letter from Lang did not mention the dispute with E. S. Hartland.
