Zeisberger's previous works "A Grammar of the Language of the Lenni Lenape" (PhilTrans, 1827), and "Zeisberger's Indian Dictionary" (Cambridge, 1887) and the "Delaware Spelling Book" were the chief resources to the missionaries and "unquestionably the present Lenape-English Dictionary was founded mainly upon the linguistic work of this proto-Lenapist."
