Date: 
June 28, 1886 - July 17, 1886

Mauricio Martin requests the return of his son Lorenzo Martinez (here referred to as Lorenzo Martin) for the vacation due to his mother's ill health. Martin states that she does not believe the letters and photographs Lorenzo sends home.

Richard Henry Pratt responds that Martinez is doing well at the Carlisle Indian School and does not recommend having Martinez return home especially at Government expense. He notes that he would not be opposed to having Martinez return home at his father's expense with the exception that he might be convinced to not return.
