The Principes algonquins is a very brief sketch of the grammar of Algonquin as it was understood by one, and perhaps by more than one, of the early missionaries to Canada. It was apparently written in 1661, the date on the first page of the manuscript in which it is found, ASSM Manuscript 104, purportedly the oldest Ojibwa/Algonquin document in existence. The sketch, found at the very end of Manuscript 104, is almost five pages long, with each page divided into two columns.
