Lyndon A. Smith requests from Richard Henry Pratt part of the Carlisle Indian School Exhibit at the Government Exhibition in New Orleans due to a request by the French Government. Pratt informs the Bureau of Indian Affairs that while he was planning on setting up the exhibit at Carlisle for visitors but that nothing in exhibit cannot be replicated and he believes it would be beneficial to provide the French Government with part or the entire exhibit.
