  1. As expected, very professional!
    For next version, how about a brief annotation of strengths of each?

  2. That is a very good suggestion, and it tests my memory. I will follow up with annotations eventually. They will be very helpful to a beginning researcher. They probably would like to know why they should read about Abenakis as well. Thank you very much.
