Mooneyʹs informant in 1885 and 1886 in Washington for the Upper Cherokee was N. J. Smith (Tsálatihĭ), "chief of the East Cherokees," and in North Carolina in 1887 Mooney revised the Upper Cherokee with N. J. Smithʹs brother, Ross Smith. The Middle Cherokee was recorded in 1887 on the reservation from James Blythe, "the official interpreter, and his brother David . . . ." The Middle Cherokee is "written or underlined with red ink."
