Scope and content

Dated 30 août 1923 - Understands that Frazer's correspondent Barbara Aitken [Barbara Freire-Marreco] is interested in his articles on the Habés, and lists other publications; in one he appends a lexicon of four of the thirty or so dialects, and thinks it would be very desirable to have an ethnographer with philological skills visit, they would be made welcome; understands she wants photographs, he does not have these, but made sketches in a journal now in Algeria, recommends 'Agence economique de l'Afrique occidentale in Paris as a source.
