Inscribed by Anderson, "This vocabulary was made by me in 1854 or 1855 from Ia-coos, a part Klatskanai, living at Cathlamet on the Lower Columbia--the sole survivor, I believe, who had a knowledge of the language--the tribe having become extinct. A. C. A., Roubank, Victoria, B. C., 26th June, 1876." The Manuscript is elsewhere marked by Anderson, "A copy of this, with the preceding sheets, was given by me to Mr George Gibbs."
