Richard Henry Pratt requests that the Office of Indian Affairs send a letter to a group of San Carlos Apache encouraging them to remain at the Carlisle Indian School in order to complete the grammar grades. Pratt cites that the students desire to go home but that with Arizona passing a law providing a law for dead Indians and the state of their reservations that it would be better for them to remain in the East.
