Alfred John Standing responds to the Office of Indian Affairs letter regarding the request of Elijah J. Cornelius to have his sons Jesse and James returned home. Standing notes that the students are not eligible to be returned home for another year according to an Office ruling but that their health will be evaluated when the home going parties are arranged to see if it warrants them being returned early.
