Outing Host's Experience and Desire for Reimbursement for Students' Board

Outing Host's Experience and Desire for Reimbursement for Students' Board
Date: 
December 13, 1880

Alex Hyde writes to Secretary of the Interior Carl Schurz about his experience as an outing host for three Carlisle Indian School students, Lillie, Stephen, and Frank, in the Summer of 1880. Hyde states that he heard about outing from his daughter, Mary R. Hyde, who works as a girl's matron at Carlisle and that he enjoyed his time as a host, finding that the three students were quick learners. He would like to host students again but doesn't think he'd be able to afford to do so because Richard H. Pratt cannot pay for the students' board while they're away.
