Richard Henry Pratt forwards a report from Alfred John Standing regarding his trip to Michigan and Minnesota to recruit students for the Carlisle Indian School. Pratt details the obstacles Standing experienced including maintaining a relatively equal gender ratio and the decentralized nature of the various communities and poor prior experiences of sending students away to school.

Standing further comments on various aspects of the places he visited including the public schools in Michigan he visited.

A note on the wrapper notes that Thomas J. Morgan held the files until sending them to the files department on April 12, 1893.
