Abstract / Summary
Date: 28.2.18. Place: Oburaku. Informants: Morovato, Boba'u, Mwayoulo. Four pages contain an extensive passage numbered J225, an English translation of accounts of the behavior and nature of various sea creatures -- generally named in indigenous text -- including feeding, mating, swimming etc. There is a column of indigenous terms with English translations on the left. They are written on the back of reused stationery: a partial, hand-written list of agricultural journals; and a partial, hand-written letter from pearl trader Billy Hancock, discussing a flu outbreak.
