Description: Correspondence with the American Philosophical Society largely concerning Robert H. Mathews' proposal and preparation of a series of articles on Aboriginal Australians published in the Proceedings of the American Philosophical Society. The letters contain little direct ethnographic content, but may provide additional context on Mathews's research on peoples of New South Wales and southern Queensland during the mid- to late 1890s. These letters have all been digitized.
