Request for Transfer of Menominee Boys from Carlisle to Hampton

Request for Transfer of Menominee Boys from Carlisle to Hampton
Date: 
November 6-19, 1879

Richard Henry Pratt forwards to the Commissioner of Indian Affairs a letter, sent to General Samuel Armstrong of the Hampton Institute by Green Bay agent E. Stephens. Stephens requests that two students just sent to Carlisle, Joseph Wishecoppy [Wisecoby] and Moses Nonway, be sent to Hampton to join two other recently enrolled Menominee students, Charles Shamin and Michael Oshkenamew. Pratt approves the transfer, if the Commissioner also finds it favorable.

Note: It appears these two students remained at Carlisle.
