Background and Request to Enroll Antoinette Williams
Date: 
November 28, 1881 - December 5, 1881

Richard Henry Pratt forwards two letters along with his recommendation that Antoinette Williams, a member of the Navajo Nation, be allowed to be enrolled at the Carlisle Indian School. The two forwarded letters indicate that Williams was brought east to the Blair Academy in Blairstown, New Jersey by J. V. Landerdale as Landerdale hoped she would become a teacher back in New Mexico.
