Note on the Cowlitz, in Gatschet's hand: "Differs quite considerably from the Kuwalitsk of Gibbs--Powell, Contributions I, 271, etc."
Words for "father", "mother" and others indicate this is definitely Lower Cowlitz (Salishan). Manuscript examined by Dr M. Dale Kinkade, University of Kansas, here 3/11/71.
Laurence Thompson, here 4/64, points out that there is confusion between Cowlitz (a southern Washington language close to Upper Chehalis) and Kuwalitsk, apptly. a Fraser River dialect--cf. Powell Contrib. I, page 269.
