Richard Henry Pratt provides a recommendation for John D. Miles to fill the position of Superintendent of the Haskell Institute. Pratt writes that Miles had the best schools of any agency he dealt with and that Miles would be the best man for the job. Pratt ends by noting that only someone who is willing to reside at the school and give it their undivided attention should be appointed to the role.
