Desire to Continue being an Outing Host after the Closure of the School

Date
July 27, 1918 - August 8, 1918

Banker and outing patron R. H. Headley asks Commissioner of Indian Affairs Cato Sells if there is any way that he can host an Indian boy at his home after the Carlisle Indian School closes. Headley states that he has been an outing host since 1900 and would like to continue to be one if at all possible.

Assistant Commissioner E. B. Meritt forwards Headley's letter to Traveling Auditor in Charge C. V. Peel and asks if he can accomodate Headley's request. Peel replies that he does not know of any boys that Headley could host but suggests that he writes to Cherokee Indian School Superintendent J. E. Henderson, who formerly was an Outing Agent at CarlisleĀ
