Local Note
Local Note
Consider sorting by area only (to include e.g., notes by Mooney on both Creek and Cherokee) or possibly by name of staff member supplying the information (notes by Mooney on Creek, Cherokee and Kiowa in the same letter), since file is probably of at least as much historical interest as it is a source of specific information-- MCB.
