The outline, including title, "Note," "Key," English words, and native names used as column headings, is all written in one hand, presumably Anderson's; words in the three Indian languages are in another hand, verified as Crook's "from material written by General Crook in War College Library," according to note by M.W. Tucker on old Manuscript envelope; note at top of title page, "By Lieut. now Gen. George Crook," is in hand of George Gibbs. Date supplied from information quoted by Pilling, Bureau of American Ethnology Bulletin 14, 1892, page 21, indicating that Lieutenant Crook's first assignment was with the Fourth Infantry in California, 1852-61.
