They seem to bc a race to themselves, and in- stead of being small and dark as at Cape Bathurst, the.y are big and talL When we arrived in their part of tin: country my interpreter advised me not to go amongst them, as Sir John Robinson and all other travellers had made long circuits to escape them.
