Information Related to Sending Students to Huntingdon Reformatory
Date: 
January 4, 1892

Richard Henry Pratt follows up on a conversation with Thomas J. Morgan in regards to placing students who commit crimes while attending the Carlisle Indian School at the Huntingdon Reformatory. Pratt writes that he has discussed the matter with Pennsylvania Governor Robert E. Pattison and that according to Pattison the laws of Pennsylvania do not preclude Indian students from being sent to the reformatory. In addition, after having spoken with the Reformatory Superintendent, Pratt feels more confidant that the students would be looked after.

Pratt includes 12 enclosures covering the reformatory.
