Update on Red Lake Party and Proposal to Send School Employee for Students
Date: 
November 24, 1891

Richard Henry Pratt informs the Office of Indian Affairs that only student from the White Earth Agency has arrived at Carlisle despite his attempts to arrange transportation. Pratt further states that the student who did arrive upon his medical examination was found unfit. As a result the reliance upon the Agency's to select and send students should be abandoned and Pratt recommends that an Agent of the School should be send to San Carlos to recruit the 50 Apache students.
