Date: 
November 4, 1884

Richard Henry Pratt requests permission to allow two Arapaho Chiefs, Powder Face and Left Hand, as well as their wives to visit the Carlisle Indian School in the hopes of making it easier to allow families to send girls to the school by having women visit. In addition, Pratt proposes allowing two Cheyenne chiefs and their wives visit for the same purpose.
