Richard Henry Pratt, brings to attention the account of Carlisle School physician Dr. W. H. Faulkner who was advanced two hundred dollars to accompany two sick students to their homes. According to Pratt this transaction was approved by the Commissioner of Indian Affairs but the official transaction has not yet received official departmental action making it impossible to keep financial accounts straight.
