Transcription - Page 3

I am sorry to learn that
the disappearance or at least dissolution
of the Australian tribes is proceeding so
rapidly. It is much to be hoped
that Spencer and Gillen may succeed
in rescuing more valuable information
before it is too late. I trust that
you contemplate publushing the results
of your long researches and
enquiries in a collected and
definitive form. You would render
a great service to anthropology by
doing so.

Please remember me very kindly
to Mr Fison and Prof. Spencer
Believe me
Yours very truly
J G Frazer
