Date: 
March 14, 1887 - March 18, 1887

Nellie Londrosh writes to Richard Henry Pratt seeking his help in fulfilling her appointment as an assistant teacher at the Winnebago Industrial School. Londrosh documents that she arrived without orders and the Superintendent refused to place her in the position until he heard from Washington D.C. Pratt forwards the letter to the Office of Indian Affairs and notes that if she is not appointed as an assistant teacher then he recommends bringing her back to Carlisle.
