Mr. Hugh Whitcombe,
C/o Messrs. Whitcome & Tombs,
Dear Mr. Whitcombe,
As requested by you I am sending herewith the typescript of the
book about which Mr. H.E. Partridge spoke to you last week. It is
entitled "Maori Portraits and Maori Customs ... from the original
paintings by Gottfried Lindauer, described by James Cowan". The
book is, in my opinion, worthy of publication, and I would
recommend it to you for the best consideration that you can
possibly give it.
I enclose a form of receipt which I shall be glad if you will
sign and return to me.
CHIEF LIBRARIAN & DIRECTOR.
