Richard Henry Pratt replies to an Office of Indian Affairs letter regarding the lease of the Hocker Farm. Pratt notes that he believed the lease which was renewed in 1884 was for five years and was confirmed in this belief when the funds for the second quarter were granted without question and have already been paid.
