Two Letters

Two Letters.

The Right Hon. Sir George Grey, K.C.B., to the Author.

7 Park Place,
St. James's, S.W.

3rd August, 1894.

Dear Sir,—I think your illustrations of Maori tattooing are interesting and valuable, as they give with great correctness some of the patterns of Maori tattooing; and the portraits are equally interesting as they give excellent illustrations of the art of “moko” which is rapidly passing away, and will soon be forgotten.

Faithfully yours,

G. Grey

The Right Hon. Sir John Lubbock, Bart., M.P., to the Author.

High Elms,
Farnborough, R.S.O.

1st December, 1894.

Dear Sir,—I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your letter, and shall be happy to see your book on New Zealand tattooing.

It is most important to preserve all evidence of a life which is rapidly disappearing.

I am, yours truly,

John Lubbock.
