Comments Marie Smith and Lena Saska, Cordova, June 1963.
"These notes are not the closest source -- much of the rechecking for errors (of which there are many, particularly in the learning of glottalization and length) was done directly onto the slips.  Many of the corrections are not found in the notebooks" (Krauss, inside cover of notebook 1].
