Local Note
Local Note
All of the vocabularies are annotated in pencil in a different handwriting. Annotations include references to "my notes already forwarded," and "appendix already sent, but the notes referred to have not been located (12/1969). Many of the Navaho forms added in pencil are marked "(N C)" (possibly referring to another dialect?). Handwriting identified, tentatively, as that of A.C. Anderson (compare Manuscript 123); the meaning of "N C" still not explained, 8/1970.
Local Note
The handwriting of the pencil notes was compared with William Wadden Turner's handwriting in Manuscript Number 136, and no similarity was found.
