Education and Return of Osage Students at Carlisle
Date: 
March 30, 1885

Richard Henry Pratt notes that the Carlisle Indian School has 58 Osage students at the school at present including 45 boys and 13 girls. He writes that between 10 and 15 of these students should be returned due to health and other considerations.

Pratt concludes by noting that the Osage Nation is able and willing to pay for educating their children and it may be worthwhile to send them to schools without a special appropriation.
