He will photograph some of the tools kept at Hobart Museum. He thanks Roth for the copy of Aborigines of Tasmania [1st edition], saying "you seem to have exhausted all sources of information"

He believes that Fanny Cochrane Smith is a "half caste"; he might be able to get photographs of her and will ask for a sample of hair. He doubts her husband would allow her dissection in the event of her death.
