Washington, B. 0., July 1, 1905.
Sir: I have the honor to submit herewith the manuscript of Bulletin 30
of the Bureau of American Ethnology, entitled "Handbook of American
Indians," which has been in preparation for a number of years and has
been completed for publication under the editorship of Mr F. W. Hodge.
The Handbook contains a descriptive list of the stocks, confederacies,
tribes, tribal divisions, and settlements north of Mexico, accompanied
with the various names by which these have been known, together with
biographies of Indians of note, sketches of their history, archeology,
manners, arts, customs, and institutions, and the aboriginal words
incorporated into the English language.
