Grammar th'American Lingo

1935 - 1938
Ten hektographed newsletters, "written in American," one page each, presumably unpublished elsewhere, found in Helena Sidis's files, 1977.
"For a period of three years there has been appearing a hektographed paper called the Penacook Courier, mailed from a mysterious source (its postmark was different almost every time), and each issue of which was dated from some time in the past, such as "July, 1776," and described the Courier's own version of American history as though it was a current event. It now appears that this paper actually had a subscription list, as arrangements were completed―still without revealing who issued the paper―on September 21, at the height of the great hurricane, to transfer that subscription list to Continuity News. Although we are a different sort of paper, we hope we will give satisfaction to the former readers of the Penacook Courier. We will try to make special arrangements for those who were on both subscription lists."― Continuity News, Oct., 1938

That tribal organisation just surprised me by sending―from some place in New Hampshire I never heard of before, an historical newspaper written in American, and which seemed to be good and exciting stuff. Hope they can keep it up.
