"The notices of a version of the Scriptures in
the Canoj dialect are few and brief.   We are only informed that the Serampore translators commenced
a version of the New Testament in 1815; that it was printed as far as the Gospel of St. John in 1820;
and completed in 1822 in an edition of 1000 copies.   In the impossibility of obtaining any better
testimony, we are assured by four Canoj pundits, that "the language of this Testament is such as
is spoken by the people of Canoj, and that such as have read the book, have identified the language
to be that of their country."
