Notes This tape is a copy made from the first of a set of four tapes lent to the Language Lab probably in 1962 (see note inside box). McDavid's tapes were apparently dubbed for him from one (or more) private recordings made originally on silver wire. The mention of the dates 1959 and 1960 indicate a date of 1960-62 for the recording. Note: the quality of the sound is very poor.
