Richard Henry Pratt refers to an Office of Indian Affairs letter regarding his approval of the nomination of Miss Aspell. Pratt notes that she was appointed to an original vacancy so the Office's objection was not applicable. Pratt further discusses the position of his farmer as not being satisfactory and documents the steps he has taken to fill the position with the current farmer for the Cumberland County Poor House.
