Date: 
May 14, 1883 - May 19, 1883

Richard Henry Pratt forwards a letter from L. D. Davis, Superintendent of the Indian Boarding School at the Pawnee Agency, regarding sending twelve Pawnee students to Carlisle. Davis notes that many of the older students desire to go to Carlisle because some of their former classmates are at Carlisle and they have a correspondence.

Pratt also notes that the school should be able to accommodate 400 students at Carlisle in the upcoming school year.
