A.W. Howitt Esq

Dear Sir,

I am sorry to say
that none of the natives have
been able to find the little
animal ("turnung") you wrote
about some time ago.
I am afraid you will be tired
of waiting for one.
Old Barak hurt his knee
a little while ago and he is
not able to go out into the
bush just now, but although
others have been looking about
they have not yet been successful
