To Henry Rawlinson   1 February 1872

Bot Gard. Melbourne



The enclosed, dear Sir Henry, is a copy of the notes on the bone-remnants supposed to be those of some of Leichhardts party, and found by Mr Gilmour at Wantatta.2 The examination was made by my friend Dr James Rudall, one of our leading operative Surgeons and anatomists.

With best salutation
