RC2009/2/69 - 15 Feb 1930

15th February, 1930.

Mr. Hugh Whitcombe,
C/o Messrs. Whitcombe & Tombs,
Private Bay, G.P.O.,

Dear Mr. Whitcombe,


I am in receipt of your letter of 12th February, and in reply beg to advise you that the book Maori Portraits and Maori Customs is entirely the property of Mr. H.E. Partridge. The volume was left with me solely for safe keeping until arrangements could be made for its publication. Whatever is done in connection with it should be done direct with Mr. Partridge. I am sending Mr. Partridge a copy of your letter and my reply.

I am very glad to learn that arrangements are being made for the publication of the book.

I am,
Yours faithfully,
[John Barr]
