34 Charlotte Square, Edinburgh. Dated June 1st, 1904 - Is sorry he can't give him information regarding the fire-drill among the tribes of the Malay Peninsula; there is evidence that the specimens obtained by Vaughan Stevens were forgeries, and that he was often under the influence of morphia, making his observations unreliable; agrees that associating sex to different parts of the fire-drill suggests a primitive race, has noticed the sexuality of nature as conceived of by the Malays, and gives examples; sails for India to take a place at Calcutta, which he is afraid will hamper him from his real work, anthropology.
