Pratt Responds to Office Order to Cover San Carlos Transportation Costs
Date: 
April 16, 1892

Richard Henry Pratt responds to an Office of Indian Affairs letter requiring him to cover the expense of the San Carlos Agent for the costs of transporting Justin Head and Norman Cassadore from Wilcox to San Carlos. Pratt notes that filling this order places him in an awkward situation as he only permitted Cassadore to return at his own expense. He further states that that his funds are very low and he should not have allowed the students return at a cost to the school.
