Pratt Makes Limited Report on the Haskell Indian School
Date: 
July 12, 1890

Richard Henry Pratt in compliance with a request from the Office of Indian Affairs regarding the Haskell Indian School. Pratt notes that upon his arrival in San Francisco from his recent trip to Japan he received a letter from Haskell Superintendent Charles Francis Meserve asking him to stop at Haskell. Pratt explains that his interactions were limited so he cannot make a full report but notes that his conversations led him to believe that Haskell needs to be isolated from local and regional politics if it is going to succeed.
