The Klatskanai (Tlatskanai) vocabulary is a fragmentary copy. A note by Anderson, 1876, says he gathered the words in 1854 or 1855 from the last survivor of his tribe. To it are added words and numerals of another tribe of Athapascan stock, the "Tah-cully" (Takulli) of the upper Fraser River, British Columbia. With this manuscript is a torn sheet containing words and expressions in "Arra-Arra or Middle Klamath," endorsed by Anderson as "by the late George Gibbs Esq."
