In this letter R.L Kirk states how pleased he is that Dr Angell is back in Melbourne and soon to start culturing some samples of Aboriginal blood. He hopes that she will get the necessary cooperation from the Northern Territory Department of Health and from Dr Woodruff in South Australia. He notes that he is sending her a set of his reprints and that he has reviewed the literature up to 1965 in a monograph, 'The Distribution of Genetic Markers in Australian Aborigines'.
