Richard Henry Pratt responds to an Office of Indian Affairs circular letter regarding students for a normal training school in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Pratt notes that Carlisle has had some limited success in producing students for normal schools and strongly advocates for placing students among established normal schools and colleges. He cites several examples of students successfully continuing their education. As a result he notes that unless he hears more he is assuming the circular was not meant for Carlisle.
