Richard Henry Pratt inquires about using appropriation to support former students currently enrolled at various colleges who are currently being supported by the Charity Fund. Pratt notes that he has many calls on his Charity Fund and is about $5,000 in debt on account of the Gymnasium and Large Boys' Quarters costing $22,000 and that he would be glad to save these expenses to his charity fund in order to decrease his debt.
