Request to Return Hartley Ridge Bear to His Home

Request to Return Hartley Ridge Bear to His Home
Date: 
February 16, 1888 - February 23, 1888

Ridge Bear requests that his son Hartley Ridge Bear be returned to his home from the Carlisle Indian School. Ridge Bear notes his daughter, Hartley's sister, is ill and wishes to see her brother.

Richard Henry Pratt notes that he approves of the request due to the fact that Hartley was due to return to the Cheyenne and Arapaho Agency the prior year before he decided to reenroll. Pratt notes that Hartley should be allowed to go with the understanding that he return to Carlisle for a few more additional years of schooling.
