Dennison Wheelock requests permission from the Bureau of Indian Affairs to return to his home at the Green Bay Agency. Wheelock cites his cold room and the general ill health of many students at Carlisle. In reply, Obadiah G. Given, the school physician, claims that as a percentage there are no more sick students than at any other time. Richard Henry Pratt requests that Wheelock's request be denied.
