work in the North-West, with headquarters at Norway House. Had already
devoted much time to the study of the native languages, and while at
Norway House invented the Cree syllabic characters, a simple, phonetic
system, by means of which the Indian was taught to read with surprising
facility. At first cast his own type, built his own press, and printed
on birchbark. Later obtained more effective materials, and set up
catechisms, hymn-books, and portions of the Bible in syllabic. =Bib.=:
