Title: Letter to Fitzherbert 9/11/31 and vocabularies
Issue Date: 27-Nov-2013
Abstract: Eucla vocabulary (Jinyila wongga) 29 p. from several informants and 13 pages of miscellaneous notes, including a Eucla pedigree, songs, names of some Eucla natives and their waters, to complete Daisy Bates’ survey of vocabulary of SW edge of the Nullarbor Plain. There are some Bibbulmun words from the west, north and north east. People from Bight Head (Ilgamba) and Eucla (Jinyila) have, since white settlement, intermarried. There are accounts of cousin marriages and some physical deformities that result. DB expresses the need for a British gentleman to be High Commissioner of Australian aborigines, free of party and political restraint.
