Notes Text consists of three 8.5" x 11" sheets dittoed on one side only and stapled together with a cover sheet. The use of ditto suggests the 1950s as the possible date of creation. Furthermore, the close resemblance of this document to the one in the Melanesian Pidgin English collection (I.D.# 2051, B/C T70010835) suggests that a single person acquainted with the language prepared both. The text is filed under "MLP 3.1 U. of C. / Intro.") iin vertical file VF02
Creation Date c. 1950
