Abstract
The material in this document was collected by the author in 1859 from the results of his own observations as well as from data supplied him by native informants. A picture of the 'acculturated' Delaware is presented in the first few pages of this source, particularly in regard to the 'payment day' holidays, in which they received their annual annuities from the U.S. Government. In addition to the above, information may also be found in this source on: clans, marriage regulations, chieftainship, origin myths, religious beliefs, naming procedure, the modern educational system, spirits and gods, eschatology, and a brief description of some of their ceremonials.
