Richard Henry Pratt forwards teacher J. W. Hendren's request for a 30-day leave of absence due to poor health, a letter from school physician S. L. Diven verifying Hendren's "severe bronchial cold," and a letter from Hendren in which he requests the 30-day sick leave of absence, to resign from the Carlisle Indian School at the end of the leave, to follow that with a three month unpaid leave of absence, and finally to receive another position at a warmer, dryer location elsewhere in the Indian Service.
