Letter from Rev. Wm. McMurray to H. R. Schoolcraft
November 11th, 1845.
MY DEAR SIR
I have just received the vocabularies, with the Indian words, from the Rev. Adam Elliot, of Tuscarora, to whom I sent them for the translation. The cause of the delay was his severe illness, and the difficulty of getting suitable persons to give him the Indian. He says, before you publish, if you will send him, through me, the proof sheets, he will have them corrected for you, and forwarded without delay. He is an amiable and most excellent man.
Yours, most faithfully,
