Richard Henry Pratt responds to an Office of Indian Affairs letter regarding the rations used at the Carlisle Indian School and a comparison between the Indian School rations and Army rations. Pratt notes the differences mainly in what the school can produce on its own as well as the need for more soap to properly clean buildings and people. He ends by including his own recommendations for the Indian Schools throughout the country.
