The Spanish and Portuguese missionaries in America, too, (especially those of the Jesuit order) rendered good service to the study of the numerous native languages of both continents. Most of the modern learning on the subject is derived from their treatises, chiefly manuscript, preserved by the Society. Nor were the other orders less efficient. Padre Josef Carabantes, a Capuchin of the province of Aragon, (born in. 1648) wrote a most valuable practical treatise for the use of missionaries, which was long a text book in their hands.
