Scope and content

1 Brick Court, Middle Temple, E.C. Dated 14th November 1914 - Has been reading the proofs [of 'The Northern Bantu']; clarifies the difference between exogamous and endogamous, and points out several practices Roscoe gave him for his 'Totemism and Exogamy' that he has omitted; writes at length about using slip proofs, and mentions that Lilly had suggested page proofs as cheaper, but did not realise the extent of the changes to be made; [C. G.] Seligman is in favour of delaying the proposed expedition as there may be fighting in Uganda, and also to await [A. C.] Haddon's return in January.
