Lewellyn E. Woodin, U.S. Indian Agent for the Ponca, Pawnee, and Otoe Agency, notes that the mother of Harriet Mary Elder (here Harriet May) requests her daughter to be sent home from Carlisle. Woodin writes that the mother is part of a party going from the Oakland Reservation to Idaho and wants her daughter to accompany her.
