Chief Spotted Tail's Request to Return his Children and Relatives Home
Date: 
June 23, 1880

Richard Henry Pratt informs Acting Commissioner of Indian Affairs E. J. Brooks that Chief Spotted Tail would like to return his children, one grandchild, and one other relative currently enrolled at the Carlisle Indian School to their homes at his own expense. Pratt believes he should be able to return his children home but not his grandchild or the other relative without their parents asking.
