    Beginning in the last years of the nineteenth century and carrying through the first two decades of the twentieth century, Moore plied southern rivers during the winter, ultimately excavating hundreds of sites during his career. The babblers are apt to be graceful at mottoes and in the witty sayings which they tell to their elders and Judges if they are over-rigourous, ambitious, avaricious, laying before them the events that have taken place and even that which concerns the officer's own duties. Numbering nearly paintings and works on paper, the collection of artwork is a complementary addition to the object collections. Peabody staff wanted a collections management system that was flexible enough to allow them to document the artifacts in a way that would make finding and studying them easier. They call him Holpop, and in his charge are the kettle-drums or Tuncules and other musical instruments, such as the flutes, little trumpets, tortoise-shells, and others that they used.

    At the entrance of the said hall stands a large stone table more than two yards long and proportionally broad, placed on stone columns, with twelve seats of the same around it for the priests. He took notes while in the field and then wrote up his observations as "Notes on Negro Music," which were published - before these archeological findings we might add - in a issue of the Journal of American Folk-lore. The other forty-five leagues from Mopan to the Lake one travels though with various windings from South to North, with some little tendency to the North-west. There are also painted portraits of Native Americans by Elbridge Ayer Burbanksome being the only extant representation of the subject.
