Abstract / Summary
Date: 18.8.18. Informant: Motagoi. A passage in the Trobriand language with simultaneous English translation, numbered J180, discusses the 'second death' that the baloma, the ancestral spirits, will eventually succumb to, then to be reborn as a flesh-and-blood infant. It is written on the back of reused stationery, consisting of a partial, handwritten letter from M.M., giving news of various acquaintances and referring to the recipient as 'my love.'
