3, Tyndale Place
London N.
July 23rd 1883

Dear Sir,

I was away from London for a few days & only just returned.

With respect to the important subject of your kind letter, I can give you no information on the ,secret-lingo‘ spoken of, except that on certain occasions, words are formed by a certain clique which defy any analogies from |2| given roots in the language, & the meaning attached to them arbitrary, & only understood by those who found them. I suppose the words given by you belong to the same category. Not knowing Calabar,1 I cannot of course speak with certainty about them.

With kind regards.
Believe me
Yrs respetfully

D. C. Crowther

Dr. H. Schuchardt Professor University of Graz Austria
