Scope and content

34 Charlotte Square, Edinburgh. Dated May 22nd /03 - Thanks him for his kind letter about his paper on Malay religion, will be continuing with ghosts, familiar spirits, wandering spirits, ritual and magic; answers his question about the reverence paid to certain fishes by certain Pitani [Patani?] families; thinks there should be a proper investigation of the beliefs of the aboriginal tribes of the Malay Peninsula; unfortunately Vaughan Stevens's work is not reliable, wonders what information [Walter William] Skeat will add in his forthcoming book; his own title of 'research student in anthropology' is an empty one, as any graduate may use it.
