I find it puzzling that these drafts are in what I am almost sure is the handwriting of George Gibbs. Gibbs might have made copies of Bartlett's papers, but these are clearly drafts, not copies, with alterations in the same hand--as though the papers were composed by Gibbs.-- M. C. Blaker, 8/58.
Local Note
According to John D. Haskell from College of William and Mary, Manuscript # 1867 is in Bartlett's handwriting. Haskell's dissertation was on Bartlett and he is thoroughly familiar with his handwriting. Per visit to National Anthropological Archives. 9/5/85. KTB.
