LeRoy Not Permitted to Recruit Students

March 24, 1880 - March 29, 1880

Secretary of War Alexander Ramsey informs Secretary of the Interior Carl Schurz that he is declining the Commissioner of Indian Affairs' request to allow Lieutenant George LeRoy Brown to recruit Indian students from nations in Colorado and New Mexico and transport them to the Carlisle Indian School because it is not a military duty. Schurz encloses Ramsey's letter to the Commissioner.
