Scope and Contents
"Miami Cards." Caption in J. R. Swanton's writing. Perhaps meant to be interfiled; or perhaps "rejects"? 37 cards, typed. "Miami language." Word list in Gatschet's hand, apparently the source from which some typed cards were transcribed. 4 pages. Letter of J. Eugene Hall, Chicago, Illinois, to Gatschet, Miami, Indian Territory, November 29, 1895. 1 page. Concerning typing of cards by Hall; typed on same machine as some of typed dictionary cards, above.
