|(1) Clerk's copy of Cooks Journal and Log, the original of which (Edgerton ms. 2177A) lacks this vocabulary, apparently removed by the editor for inclusion in the published version (2). Spelling of many Oonalashka and Norton Sound items differs from (1) to (2). ???? closer to the lost original. Ms. also differs in including column for "Sandwich Sound" ( Prince William Sound) containing only numerals, 'yes' , and 'what you call that?'. Language however is Tanaina, earliest documentation of Alaskan Athabascan. In (2) these forms are combined with PWS Sugpiaq vocabulary (1784, Vol. II, p. 375-376) again with significant spelling variation. Also in folder a copy of Kari, James and Fall, James. 1986. Shem Pete's Alaska,Chapter 16.|
