Richard Henry Pratt responds to an Office of Indian Affairs regarding a letter from Henry M. Rice who discusses placing a Mille Lac Nation member in an industrial training program. Rice indicates that Wah-go-osh is quite adept at the tin smith trade but has had no formal training and would greatly benefit both himself and the reservation by being exposed to a working tin shop. Pratt agrees with Rice that being placed in a working shop would be more beneficial rather but would accept him as a student at Carlisle if the office believes that is a better idea.
