Transcription - Page 103

It would seem that Berak's list of the
Kulin tribes must be increased by those of
the Jajaurong - since he include [sic] at least
one of them - namely that at Mt Macedon.

5Galgal Baluk - Kyneton jajauworung

Note I have numbered the above tribes of William
's list as numbered by Parker. This confirms
Berak's accuracy in other respects.
