Wheeler, Report upon United States Geographical Surveys West of the One Hundredth Meridian, v. VII, Washington, 1879, pages 405 and 424-465. Loew, Oscar. "Moqui vocabulary." Arizona. 1873. Manuscript document. 11 pages. Recorded in Smithsonian Institution Comparative Vocabulary. Copied from an original in Gibbs' orthography. The 17 in red pencil on the title page refers to Vocabulary Number 17 in George M. Wheeler, Report Upon United States Surveys West to the One Hundreth Meridian, v. VII, Washington, 1879, pages 405, 424-65 and 473, which is either from the original or this Manuscript. The spelling in the published version differs from that used here. Original not located as of January, 1970. Note on the last page reads, "This dialect is copied from the original Manuscript of Dr Oscar Loew and is written according to Gibbs' method." The title page is stamped, "U. S. Engineer Office. Explorations West of the 100th Meridian. Apr[il] 9, 1875."
Contents: Loew, Oscar. "Isletta" vocabulary. New Mexico. November 26, 1873. Autograph document signed. 10 pages. Recorded in Smithsonian Institution Comparative Vocabulary. "Lt.

T.," in reference to four terms in the vocabulary. "J. H. T." probably is J. Hammond TRumbull, but the duplicate referred to has not been located as of 1/70. The Number "30" in red pencil on the title page refers to vocabulary Number 30 in George M. Wheeler, Report upon United States Geographical Surveys West of the One Hundredth Meridian, VII, Washington, 1879, pages 405, and 424-465, which was taken from this original or the duplicate referred to by "J.

VII, Washington, 1879, pages 405, 424-465, and 469, which is apparently taken from this original. The published version may be from another copy of the same vocabulary; the date given for the published vocabulary is June, 1873, rather than July, 1873.
Contents: Gatschet, Albert Samuel. Osage vocabulary. No date. Autograph document. 5 pages. Recorded in Smithsonian Institution Comparative Vocabulary. Note in Gatschet's handwriting on 1st page reads, "Big Heart: 2) Nanze tanka; was also name of his father; 1) given name Panka wata-inka, saucy Ponka -- are the two names of the Governor of the Osages, my informant..."

Wheeler, Report upon United States Geographical Surveys West of the 100th Meridian, v. VII, Washington, 1879. The Osage vocabulary is not related to that report. Brown, Theo. V., Hospital Steward, U. S. Army. "Pi-Ute" vocabulary. Las Vegas, Nevada. September, 1871. Autograph document signed. 11 pages partly filled. Recorded in Smithsonian Institution Comparative Vocabulary.
