My mother always insisted on re-checking her translations before she authorized me to put them on her website. Some of her earlier translations never managed to get re-checked before her death. With her permission, I am now providing them as secondary materials, something like drafts. Since so few translations from Igbo are available, these will perhaps be of interest even in their less polished state.   --Fran Pritchett, June 2012
