Response to Objection of Employment of Flora Well Known and George Hill
Date: 
February 28, 1887

H. F. Bond, the Superintendent of the Montana Industrial School for Indians, responds to the objections of the Office of Indian Affairs for allowing Flora Well Known and George to leave Carlisle early and to enter employment at the school as assistants. Bond presents his case for allowing Well Known and Hill to become assistants including their reputation among the Crow and their knowledge of the Crow language.

Bond further states that he believes the Montana School would provide students for the non-reservation boarding schools and the school could provide employment for those graduates.
