Pratt Responds to Request to Return Louisa King
Date: 
May 17, 1892

Richard Henry Pratt responds to a request from George King forwarded by the Office of Indian Affairs for the return of his daughter Louisa King. Pratt notes that the writer of the letter S. S. Burleson is in his mid a proper person to be on the reservation as he stirs up all sorts of trouble. Further he has written to Oneida and he finds that returning Louisa would not be in her best interests but that due to the persistence in this case he will return her against his own judgement and against the best interests of Louisa.
