Pratt Responds to Response to Return Lily Huff to her Husband
Date: 
July 12, 1891 - July 25, 1891

Richard Henry Pratt forwards a letter by Nicholas Huff regarding his daughter Lily Huff being enrolled at the Carlisle Indian School. Pratt writes that he would not stand in the way of Lily being returned to her husband but that she should stay at Carlisle for a number of years before taking the full burden of wifehood. In addition, he is getting a party of students from Oneida that Josiah Baird could join if he obtains a reference to his character.
