DescriptionMUL038R047I001 starts out with Sorensen reading a letter that he had written in Spanish and sent to Don Hernández de Alba; in the letter he talks about his wishes and demands for his field work in the Vaupés, as well as his experiences with the SIL linguist-missionaries there. He later talks in English about the letter and why he wrote and sent it. He talks about other thoughts and plans that he has regarding his research and studies. At one point he says that the date is February 17, but he does not state the year on this side of the tape. This recording seems to have been made while Sorensen was a masters student at Columbia University.
