Abstract

Report sent to George Washington Walker in a letter from Threlkeld congratulating Walker on his recent marriage to Sarah Benson Mather. In the report he objects to the scientific assessment of aborigines because it denies the potential influence of God on their lives. Threlkeld is 'very much grieved at our want of spiritual success amongst the few remaining Aborigines'.
