Cook Writes to his Daughter Grace at Carlisle

June 1, 1881 - June 20, 1881

Cook, a member of the Sioux Nation, writes to his daughter Grace at the Carlisle Indian School. He writes that others in the Rosebud Agency are attempting to have their children returned from Carlisle but he does not think they will succeed. If they do though he would like Grace to return although he would also be happy with her staying and learning at Carlisle.

Richard Henry Pratt forwarded the letter to the Commissioner of Indian Affairs because of the connection with the Rosebud Sioux request to return their children.
