Scope and Contents
Scope and Contents
There is a set of miscellaneous notes based on each of the Indian vocabularies; also a photostatic copy of the manuscript. The vocabularies appear to be derived from material in National Anthropological Archives manuscripts 144 (Ross); 132 (Kennicott, Chipewyan); 120 (Kennicott, Slave); 141 (Kennicott, Hare); and 221 (Pettitot, Hare). Differences between forms in this manuscript and those in the originals suggests that some analysis was carried out by Roehrig.

Custodial History
The documents bear the stamped date January 15, 1874 (perhaps the date they were received by the Smithsonian or by George Gibbs).
