Richard Henry Pratt forwards a letter from Standing Bear after his arrival at the Carlisle Indian School. In the letter Pratt notes that Standing Bear believes that the school should return the children for the summer but that many of the younger ones are likely to be back in the fall. He also notes that Standing Bear wishes for the government to build a house for the returning students in order to allow them to become a separate community at the Agency.
