Bibliography
Dell H. Hymes, in letter of July 25, 1957, to W.C. Sturtevant (commenting) on forms sent for determination by WCS): "In 1313, the Kathlamet tales were published in Kathlamet Texts, but the Clatsop tale may not be; however, it may be simply the part of the Chinook tale in Chinook Texts (translation, pages 102-106), labeled Clatsop because Cultee (the informant) identified it as pertaining to them."
