According to a notation on the title page, Peter Hudson, of Eagletown, Indian Territory, was a sophomore in January 1885 and enrolled in the classical course at Drury College, North Springfield, Missouri. "Paul Roulet of that institution writes: "He (P. Hudson) came to us six years since, not knowing a word of English, and has proved himself far superior in intellectual power to any we have yet had from the Indian Territory."
Recorded in J.W. Powell's Introduction to the Study of Indian Languages, 1877.
