Scope and Contents:
Formerly described as above ("Conjugation of 213 verbs in at least three tenses") but catalogued with northwestern Shoshoni vocabulary Number 835-a and assumed to be Shoshoni. Apparently Ute, however, by spot comparison with verbs in Ute vocabulary Number 828-b. Apparently this is the manuscript listed by Pilling (1st A. R., Bureau of American Ethnology, 1881), page 573 as "Conjugation of Ute Verbs, 438 11., 4 ." The figure of 213 verbs is as given on the former catalog card and has not been verified (5/67).
