Date: 
October 7, 1879

Frank D. Karr, Superintendent of Warehouse, states that his sewing machine contractor E. J. Howard does not have the Wilcox & Gibbs sewing machine requested for the Carlisle Indian School and asks the Commissioner of Indian Affairs what he should do. He also asks for more information about a requested horse carriage and hose and recommends the fire buckets be made from rubber instead of leather.
