Paras .2 and 5 regarding the royal styles of certain
kings of Pagan and of certain kings and queens of the Talaings
and the Pali passage in Shwesandaw 11 B. Mr. Duroiselle has
very kindly taken over this matter and you will,no doubt,hear
from him in due course.

Para. 3. I have now received two lists of Taungtha words,
as spoken in different localities, namely,Pauk and Gangaw,and
hasten to submit them to you,in case they may be of some use
to you.Kindly tell me whether there is any close affinity
between Pyu and Taungtha, so that further enquiries, if necessar,
may be made.If you so desired,you might also let me have a
list of English words,of which Taungtha equivalents are
required.

Yours sincerely,
