1. The enclosed notes  deal mainly with one point in our dossiers. I wonder if you think that they would provide material for an evening's discussion by the group. If you do perhaps they might be multiplied and circulated. I have sent a copy to Henderson.
2. It has occurred to me recently that tho the Institute  has now existed for nearly 18 months, I have not made very great use of it. My natural bent is towards private cogitation and I have had little experience of empirical work. What I have been wondering is whether I might arrange, without being a nuisance, to join in any work on foot, either by discussing the methods and implications of what is being done or actually doing some of the donkey work (though I myself have had no training in such matters). I had in mind the possibility of setting aside say one morning a week (or more) during next term, on which I should come regularly to the Institute and participate in some way in what is going on. What do you think?
I return to Oxford on Thursday.
