J. A. Moore, Principal of the Soldiers' Orphan School of Cumberland County, writes to Secretary of the Interior Carl Schurz regarding the possibility of sending Indian students to his school or one of the other soldiers' orphan schools in Pennsylvania. Moore informs Schurz that his school is near the Carlisle Indian School, and he recognizes how difficult it is to teach large numbers of Indian students at the school. Moore believes that the students would find similar success levels at a soldiers' orphan school as at Carlisle, and he refers Schurz to State Superintendent of Soldiers' Orphans Schools J. P. Wickershaw.
