Richard Henry Pratt responds to George King's request for the return of Louise King that was forwarded to him by the Office of Indian Affairs. Pratt refers to his letter from August 18, 1891 on the same request in which he noted that he has nothing to add. As a result if Louise is returned he would be forced to return her two younger sisters which would add to the family's burden. In addition, his transportation fund is at the point where he cannot send students back home during the remainder of the school year or until he receives a new appropriation.
