Description: A word list collected by Baylis 'for many years from many sources, - whenever I see the meaning of an aboriginal name in a paper or elsewhere I put it down in my book. Dialect not indicated. The words in parenthesis are of places'. This item is a smaller personal collection that is neither complete nor extensive. Names and words are from areas including West Australia, Queensland, Victoria as well as different localities in New South Wales. Baylis was a surveyor by profession. Though originally from Wagga Wagga he is also known to have lived in Narrandera and Euroa.
