Plan for Outing System in Massachusetts

June 15, 1880

Richard Henry Pratt informs Commissioner of Indian Affairs R. E. Trowbridge that he would like students to have outings on farms located in Berkshire and Hampshire counties in Massachusetts. According to Pratt's plan, the Bureau of Indian Affairs would pay for the students' transit while students would pay for their food and washing expenses.
