Vocabularies and notes based on material collected by Horatio Hale from enslaved African-Brazilians
United States Exploring Expedition (1838-1842)
This manuscript probably represents what Horatio Hale originally intended to publish on southern Africa in his Philology and Ethnology that is one of the volumes of the report of the United States Exploring Expedition (Wilkes Expedition). It includes several vocabularies, comparative vocabularies, and notes on the location and appearance (especially the cicatrization and other body decoration) of African tribes.
