Letter to Dr James Wilson Agnew (1815 - 1901) of The Royal Society of Tasmania, from Dr. George Fordyce Story (1800-1885) written at Kelvedon on the 1st July 1873 in reply to the queries proposed by Robert Brough Smyth (1830-1889) of Victoria respecting the flint instruments used by the Aborigines of Tasmania. Dr Story writes regarding his observations on flint instruments, weapons, manners and customs and the history of the Oyster Bay Tribe of aboriginals. This tribe traversed the East Coast of Tasmania from East Bay Neck (Dunalley) northward as far as Falmouth and George's River (St. Helens).
