Report of Defective Chalk Supplied by the Chicago Warehouse

Report of Defective Chalk Supplied by the Chicago Warehouse
Date: 
January 30, 1906

William A. Mercer informs the Office of Indian Affairs that the Empire crayon supplied by the Chicago Warehouse is defective as it is too soft and creates too much dust. Mercer recommends the Steatite Anti-dust crayon manufactured by the Andrews School Furniture Co. as it is nearly dustless and is much easier to wipe away as the preferred chalk of the Carlisle Indian School.
