Nov 12th. 1867.

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 | Saml Wilson
