La sténographie Duployé adaptée aux langues des sauvages de la Baie
d'Hudson, des Postes Moose Factory, de New Post, d'Albany, de Waswanipi &
de Mékiskan, Amérique du Nord [manuscript] / par Denis Romulus Perrault,
[between 1889 and 1895]

Apparently the same kind of shorthand used in Kamloops Wawa was also
adapted to Cree etc.  However, the above item is apparently based on an
original in Cree syllabics, and may have been for demonstration purposes
