Request to Return Tsaitkopeta Home
May 30, 1881

Richard Henry Pratt notifies the Commissioner of Indian Affairs that the former Kiowa prisoner Tsaitkopeta who has been living in Tarrytown, New York with Dr. H. Caruthers wishes to return home to the Kiowa and Comanche Agency. Pratt notes that he is entitled to have the government pay this expense and ends by saying that the only remaining former prisoner who remains in the east is Etahdleuh who is helping at Carlisle.
