Abstract / Summary
Date: 14.8.18. Informant: Leo. Six pages contain two copies of two texts of the Trobriand Islanders, each apparently typed individually, with simultaneous transliteration in English. In each case, the first page, numbered 264, contains a text labeled with the Roman numeral CLV concerning customs relating to the loading of yam houses and sharing yams - a text also contained in an earlier document. The informant 'Leo' may be Leo Austen, the resident magistrate. It also contains the notation 'p. 316' in the upper left, a possible reference to a manuscript. The second and third pages, numbered 257 and 258, are apparently parts of a different text, labeled in Roman numerals CXLVIII (b) and (c) and having to do with a quarrel over valuables.
