Thanks him for his recent letter and copies of Laughton's notes. Feels God is directing him to his current work. Discusses different approaches that could be undertaken and suggest analysis of a Meru text written by a Meru. Discusses a number of specific points of grammar making comparisons with Bantu and Kikuyu. Asks if there is a collection of Meru proverbs (perhaps by [Rev Philip M] Inoti) and if not is this something Hopkins could do. He has begun a card index of Meru words and definitions in the absence of a dictionary. Could help him by providing examples from texts, particularly anything by Inoti. Discusses and gives examples of the use of primary and secondary extensions in Kikuyu. Maybe work of Mr Muganbi will help.
Postscript: includes copy of lesson 6.
Typescript of 'Lesson 6' of Meru course presumably taught at SOAS in 1963.
