A. J. Koser informs Representative J. C. Beltzhoover that he visited the Carlisle Indian School and liked it so much that he'd like to establish an Indian school for 140 students in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania at a former Soldiers Homestead. Beltzhoover forwards Roses' letter to the Commissioner of Indian Affairs.
