Caledonian Station Hotel, Princess Street, Edinburgh. Dated 21 November 1924 - First page only, breaks off mid-sentence. Asks for news, as it has been a long time; sends a notice of a research studentship at Trinity; his presence would help the Cambridge Anthropological School which is not flourishing, asks if he knows [L. C. G.] Clarke, the Curator of the Anthropological Museum; asks his opinion of [W. H. R.] Rivers' posthumous works; are settled in Cambridge, has a room at Trinity for his library, and sleep at the Blue Boar Hotel in Trinity Street; is giving the Gifford lectures on the Worship of Nature in Edinburgh, so far the only novelty was a suggestion that the Biblical story of the Fall of Man is of negro origin.
