November 22, 1880

Richard Henry Pratt explains to the Commissioner of Indian Affairs that the price of lumber has increased by 25% since building the chapel. He also describes his issues in obtaining funding to install steam heating in the boys' quarters, and due to lack of funds, requests to postpone building a new hospital until the heating is finished.
