Richard H. Pratt recommends that former student Ella Rikert be appointed "no higher" than an assistant matron in the Indian Service at South Dakota. Pratt and Assistant Superintendent A. J. Standing forwards Rikert's application to the Commissioner of Indian Affairs.
Pratt also informs the Commissioner that Rikert is currently employed as a hospital cook at the school and has not mentioned leaving the school.
Note: Rikert was known as Ella Rickert while a student at the school.
