Richard Henry Pratt responds to a letter from George W. Scott, Superintendent of the Fort Stevenson, who had requested Pratt recommend a student to oversee the newly created harness shop at the Fort Stevenson School. Pratt responds that he does not believe that the Carlisle Indian School provides sufficient training to allow for students to become effective instructors but offers to assist Scott in any way he can while also recommending George Thomas to the Office of the Indian Affairs.
