Beside each of the Ngurungeit there was
the man to whom he gave “his words”.
Beside Capt Turnbull was my father's brother
Beside my father his uncle Winberi, beside
Billbillary was Bungerin – Beside me
are Robert Wandin, Tom Mansfield who
gets “the word” from me and Tom Donnelly.
If a Ngurungeit had a son who
was all right and who did good to the
people he would be Ngurungeit. If he
was a bad man or people did not like
him they would get some one else
- some relative of the old Ngurungaet
– his [uncle - crossed out] brother's son; [or sisters son - crossed out].
