Richard Henry Pratt responds to an Office of Indian Affairs letter regarding a request to be returned home by Festus Pelone. Pratt includes a copy of Pelone's record while at Carlisle and notes that his punishment of being on no pay is deserved and that his record means that Pratt would be willing to send him home but that for his own good it should be left to him on when to return him.
