Superintendent Moses Friedman outlines the desperate need for a new lavatory for the large boys, as the current one is outdated and unsanitary. He requests to reject all bids from contractors in order to purchase materials and have the school build its own lavatory addition to the large boys' quarters. Commissioner of Indian Affairs F. H. Abbott grants Friedman permission to do so.
Friedman requests to spend $977 from the "Indian School, Carlisle, Pa., 1913, Repairs and Improvements" appropriation on supplies needed for the lavatory's construction. A map showing the location of a sewer and disposal plant on the campus.
