Abstract / Summary
Date: 14.8.18. Place: Sinaketa (Kiriwina). Informant: Layseta. A passage in the Trobriand language with simultaneous English translation, numbered J164, discusses 'bulubwalata,' a kind of preventative or counter magic that might be said aboard a canoe. It is written on reused stationery, consisting of a partial, handwritten letter apparently between two acquaintances of Malinowski, as he is referred to in the third person.
