Scope and Contents:
MS 2733 originally contained Uchean linguistic notes and the legend of how the South Wind lost his ears, collected by Truman Michelson (11 pages). In January 1929, these materials were sent by Matthew W. Stirling, chief of the Smithsonian's Bureau of American Ethnology, to Gunter Wagner. The present location of the Uchean notes and text is unknown, and MS 2733 now only contains a copy of Stirling's letter of transmittal to Wagner.

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)
