Richard Henry Pratt responds to an Office of Indian Affairs letter apprarently asking if any of the current Carlisle School band members would be suitable as a band leader elsewhere. Pratt notes that he has a number of students who would make good band leaders but none would be good teachers. He further notes that the band members all seem satisfied and would prefer not to disturb them.
