This group of manuscripts was sent to Dr Boas on October 11, 1926. At that time the list indicated 10 notebooks containing Quileute texts, by H. B. George; when returned there were three additional notebooks, three (volumes IX, XII, and XIII) containing Quileute texts, and one containing Quileute. On February another notebook (volume XVI) was received from Dr Boas, containing Quileute texts, which did not appear on the original list.
