October 6-31, 1914
Mrs. Rose Collins asks the Commissioner of Indian Affairs Cato Sells why her daughter, a student at the Carlisle Indian School, has to pay for her own music lessons. Second Assistant Commissioner C. F. Hauke forwards Collins' letter to Supervisor in Charge of the school Oscar H. Lipps.
Lipps informs the Commissioner that vocal, orchestra, band, and mandolin club lessons are all free, but piano lessons cost $0.25. He also notes that Collins' daughter, Georgiana, is being given a chance to learn a trade and that her son, Samuel, is in the Dairy.
