Sends some answers [missing] to CD's queries on expression.
Longerenong | Wimmera
My Dear Dr. Mueller
I send you answers to a few of the questions sent by Mr Darwin. I could not answer the others with sufficient accuracy. I have endeavoured to get the missionaries in this neighbourhood to answer them but have not yet received their answers— As soon as I do so I shall forward them
And remain | Yours Truly | Sam
