MS27 and FS4 start out with speaking about their relations. They also talk about the medicine lodge and that they grew up with the legends that used to be told in the winter time before going to bed. Both agree that they are not supposed to tell these legends (but that they may say something about them). In fact, they say, people tried to poison Oliver Lamere (Paul Radin's interpreter) for assiting PR. Also, telling these stories didn't do the Hoocąks any good. They then go on speaking about the younger people who don't know the language, and discuss the problem that when teaching the little ones their parents aren't of great help as they don't understand Hoocąk. MS27 and FS4 also say that they themselves failed to teach their own children to speak it fluently.
