Oct 6 1879

My dear Mr Fison
I send you by this mail
a copy of "South Australian
Folk Lore" by our friend
Taplin. I do not know whether
I have been most amused
or irritated by reading it!
But I do know that I have
been very much annoyed
by his coldly adopting your
method of work - our method
of work as to the kinship terms
without a word of acknowledgement
and as far as you are
concerned only the
very slightest references.
