Richard Henry Pratt responds to an Office of Indian Affairs letter requesting the return of the son of Chief Plato. Pratt notes that the Carlisle Indian School has never enrolled any members of the Mescalero band of the Apache Nation. Nor have any of the Apache students at Carlisle heard of the student mentioned in the request. Pratt ends by noting the student is likely enrolled at another school.
