This does not duplicate the "Hok" vocabulary recorded in 1850 by Prince Paul of Wurtemburg, "through the kind offices of Mr Sutter, partly through his own understanding of the Indian languages, partly through his own understanding of the Indian languages, partly through his bringing the brightest Indians of both tribes ["Hok" and "Kosume"] and questioning them in my presence." See C.U. Clark (ed. and translator), Southwestern Journal of Anthropology, Volume 15, NUmber 3, 1959, pages 294-296.
