Scope and Content

From J. B. Walker to H. Ling Roth concerning the Aboriginal Tasmanian vocabulary. Rev Braim's memoir would be useful about Victorian Aborigines, but not Tasmania, and says there is considerable uncertainty about the Tasmanian language [Thomas Braim, Archdeacon (London 1846)]. Walker has compiled some rough maps showing areas occupied by aborigines and naming the main tribes.
