Local Note
In letter of July 25, 1957, to W.C. Sturtevant (commenting on forms sent for determination by WCS) Hymes wrote : "In 350, I think you are right that the material is Clatsop....In general, the orthography looks like that of Boas about 1890-94. I suspect this is a copy (whether in part by Boas himself, I can't say of course) of material Boas obtained, but never published, on the Clatsop dialect. While in Philadelphia at APS this spring, I copied a Clatsop vocabulary (by Boas) arranged according to the English translations alphabetically. Manuscript 350 may contain more material, though probably most is identical."
