Scope and Contents
Scope and Contents
Arranged alphabetically by Creek term. These are evidently the slips prepared by J. H. Trumbull from the original of the Creek dictionary by General Albert Pike, described in Pilling, Bureau of American Ethnology Bulletin 9, page 69. Mrs. A.E.W. Robertson inserted an additional set of Creek entries, and a series of Chickasaw entries. The Chickasaw entries were made in the space with the printed heading "Choctaw," which had originally been intended for a transcript of terms from Cyrus Byington's Choctaw works. However, no Choctaw entries were made. See Pilling, and B.A.E letters received --one each from J.H. Trumbull and from Mrs. A.E.W. Robertson to Powell, May, 1881.
