Rupert House Cree texts and notes collected by Truman Michelson in 1935 and 1936 at James Bay in Canada. Michelson obtained vocabulary and an English translation of a story from Andrew Wapatchee in 1935, most likely while at Rupert House (Waskaganish). He collected additional notes and texts in 1936 from William Morrison and Agnes Hester while at Moose Factory. One text is written in a mix of Moose Cree and Rupert House Cree syllabary and another is a story in English from an East Main Cree at Rupert House. There are also some notes on Moose Cree vocabulary.
