Richard Henry Pratt provides an update on the health of students for the first half of the year to the Office of Indian Affairs. He notes that there has only been one death during the school year and there have been very few serious illnesses. Pratt notes this is likely due to the improved sanitary conditions through less crowding and better health facilities.
