Scope and Contents:
Notation at top in J. R. Swanton's hand: "Probably one of the languages collected by J. O. Dorsey." But this is not Dorsey's handwriting, and on the basis of the pronouns it is not Athapascan, according to H. J. Landar (here 5/66).
According to Mary S. Linn, author of A Reference Grammar of Euchee (Yuchi), the author of this document is Frank Speck. Linn cites the unique notations that Speck uses and his unique printed 't's and 'n's and non-curled 'y's and 'g's that are present in this document. Linn also believes that the cursive handwriting looks like Speck's, noting the length of the crossed 't's. (November 19, 2009)
