Abstract / Summary
A page contains handwritten notes -- the heading 'Garden Koumwala' at the top with three brief lines about preparing ground for planting, plus a half-page of notes at the bottom headed 'Teyyava and Inaugural,' apparently describing a multi-day event in a Trobriand village. Both sections are heavily crossed out with blue pencil, with the upper section of the page being mostly empty. The notes are written on the back of reused stationery, consisting of a partial, typed document from the British Social Hygiene Council.
