Exchanging Students with the Lincoln Institute
Date: 
June 21, 1883

Richard Henry Pratt replies to a letter received from the Office of Indian Affairs regarding small girls to be sent to the Lincoln Institute in Philadelphia. Pratt notes that he would be willing to send a number of young girls at Carlisle to be sent to the Lincoln Institute along with young boys if it does not impact his budget.

Pratt recommends that only older students be enrolled at Carlisle so that ideally they are eighteen when their terms of enrollment expire. He notes that younger students cannot perform work at the school or be sent out on outing.
