John Sauk, letter, to unknown, 1775 July 10

ms-number: 775410

abstract: John Sauk, a former Moor's student, writes in an Indian language, likely Mohawk.

handwriting: Handwriting is small and mostly clear and legible; however, some letters and words are difficult to decipher.

paper: Single sheet is in good condition, with light staining, creasing and wear.

ink: Brown-black.

noteworthy: Given that John Sauk was from the Mohawk town of Kahnawake, this letter is likely in an 18th-century form of Mohawk. Because of this, and because the letter is not completely legible, no transcription has been attempted. Under the trailer on one verso, an editor, likely 19th-century, has added the note "Indian." This note has not been transcribed.


Modernized Version -- deletions removed; additions added in; modern spelling and capitalization added; unfamiliar abbreviations expanded.
