Richard Henry Pratt responds to request from Thomas John for the return of his granddaughter Phoebe Baird from her outing home to Carlisle. Pratt provides some context and the outing report that indicates that Phoebe wanted to return in August but that Pratt had written her encouraging her to stay. Pratt notes that John's letter was the first response he had heard from her but that her best interests would be served by staying in the outing program.
