Notes
  • Manuscript is an early 19th century Newfoundland Mi'kmaw prayer book containing hymns, prayers and other religious texts for use in divine worship according to Roman Catholic observance. The majority of the text is written in a hieroglyphic script which is unique to the Mi'kmaw tradition. There are also a number of annotations in the Mi'kmaw language.The manuscript consists of sewn pages bound with caribou hide encased boards. The pages are made with good quality paper. The text is mostly written in pen and ink, with some pencil as well.
  • On title frame of microfilm: ca. 1810-1812The manuscript has a leaf with a crown &​ shield watermark design and the date 1807. as well as a handwritten entry dated 1812; the latest date noted is 1892. The papermaker's name appears as J. Jellyman [located in Salisbury, Dowton, Wiltshire, England] 1807. There are also numerous notations and additions, some apparently quite recent. Microfilmed in 1999 with the permission of the Conne River Mi'kmaq Band Council, Conne River, Newfoundland, from the original manuscript, completely restored in 1998-1999 by David Hanington, Conservator, Canadian Conservation Institute
