Richard Henry Pratt responds to an Office of Indian Affairs letter regarding authority to transfer pupils to their homes. Pratt notes that it was best to return the students at once and he therefore sent the students under escort. Pratt ends by writing that the amount placed to his credit just about covers the expense.
