Richard Henry Pratt responds to an Office of Indian Affairs letter regarding the request for Thomas A. Metoxen to return to his home. Pratt notes that Metoxen has since changed his mind and requested to be sent out on outing which Pratt complied with. As a result Pratt recommends fulfilling the obligation but will follow the Office's wishes if they think it better to return him home.
