Date: 
July 19, 1882 - July 22, 1882

Samuel C. Armstrong writes that the Hampton Normal Institute is willing to educate three married Omaha couples along with three girls and one boy as government students if A. C. Fletcher is able to bring them with the Sioux delegation going to the Carlisle Indian School. Richard Henry Pratt notes that he would be willing to accept married couples as students only with the understanding that they would be placed on outing with local farmers.
