C. H. Grover requests to have Peter Curley, a member of the Pottawatomi Nation, enrolled at the Carlisle Indian School. Grover notes that Curley was previously a student at the Haskell Institute and was considered an excellent shoe maker.

Richard Henry Pratt forwards the request to the Office of Indian Affairs with a note that he favors granting the application and requests to arrange transportation for Curley to Carlisle if the Office concurs.
