Richard Henry Pratt responds to an Office of Indian Affairs letter forwarding a letter from T. J. Sheehan regarding a request to return Charles Martin and Henry Hudson to the White Earth Agency. Pratt responds that Martin is a student at Carlisle while Hudson is a student at the Educational Home in Philadelphia. In response to the request for their return he states that he believes the students should only returned to at the end of the school term as sending students home earlier would lead to further requests that would have to be complied with.
