Oneida Sachems and Councilors Request Return of Students from Carlisle
Date: 
December 11, 1885 - January 15, 1886

Oneida Sachems and Councilors request the return of various students currently at Carlisle due to lack of full consideration. Richard Henry Pratt notes that the request should be rejected as there is little discontent among the students aside from routine and some work requirements. He states that some parents requested additional children to be enrolled at Carlisle. He notes that there might be some connection to a grievance with the Bureau regarding selling dead lumber.
