Richard Henry Pratt informs the Commissioner of Indian Affairs that he has received word that Sitting Bull refuses to send any children to Carlisle. As a result he has directed his representative to go directly to Rosebud or Pine Ridge to bring back students. He ended by saying that if there are more students desiring to come from Rosebud or Pine Ridge then they could be brought back to Carlisle.
