Enrolling Six Quapaw Students from the Emlen Institute
Date: 
December 1, 1881 - December 12, 1881

Richard Henry Pratt forwards a letter from Israel H. Johnson seeking to have six students from the Quapaw Nation transferred to the Carlisle Indian School. Johnson notes that the students believed they were going to Carlisle and were as a result unhappy about being unable to learn a trade in addition to their schooling. Pratt believed that the request should be granted despite the gender imbalance at Carlisle.
