Comptroller Opinion on Osage Fund Paying for Students at Carlisle
Date: 
December 3, 1891

B. F. Gilkeson, Comptroller in the Second Comptroller's Office, responds to Thomas J. Morgan's letter regarding using interest generated from the Osage Fund to pay for Osage students at the Carlisle Indian School. Gilkeson writes that his interpretation of the treaty holds that only uses which were mentioned are valid and so funds cannot be used to pay for expenses of children at Carlisle.
