Date: 
January 6, 1892

David L. Shipley, U.S. Indian Agent for the Navajo Agency, notes that since former student Charles Damon returned home, Damon has visited the Agency a school a number of times discussing the Carlisle Indian School. As a result a number of boys have indicated a desire to enroll at Carlisle.

As a result, Shipley requests permission to take a party of Navajo students to Carlisle once the permission of their parents is secured.
