The Briakalūng up the Glengarry from
this “[?telbut?] wŭntwŭn” were Bunjil
Kraura – he was the father of Billy
’s wife. He lived up at the country
between Morwell, Rosedale, Toongabbie.
The [moor- crossed out] mūrmŭng and wŭk wŭk
Kŭrnai were I think the same.
I do not remember any Kŭrnai
called Kjatbŭn – Njalbŭn means
“none” or “no one” in our language.
