"This first edition is entirely in the Mohawk Indian language, except the English title, and the headings to the prayers. The translation by Lawrence Claesse, was based upon the translation in manuscript of Rev. Bernardus Freeman, which had been placed freely in the hands of the Rev. William Andrews by the Propogation Society for this use."--Evans
