Three untitled stories handwritten in Meskwaki (Fox) syllabary with English translations, collected by Truman Michelson in Tama, Iowa. Although Jim Peters is identified as the source of the text, the handwriting matches that of his son, Sam Peters. The translations are by Horace Poweshiek. On the notebook cover of the translations is the following note by Truman Michelson: "Jim Peters...Last story partially like Jones' Daughters of Mesoswa (macron over o); partially like last part of Ojibwa Blue Garter (European)."
