Scope and content

St Keyne's, Cambridge. Dated 13 November 1909 - Discusses the terminology of totemism, and encloses proofsheets to answer some of his questions more fully [not transcribed]; would rather that the Western Australian expedition is done by Spencer and Gillen, and thinks it a mistake to get Spencer to go without Gillen; if Spencer cannot go, then he is willing to give Sir John Murray's £200 to an expedition of [Radcliffe] Brown and [Francis Howe Seymour?] Knowles.
