Richard Henry Pratt notifies the Office of Indian Affairs that he has received a telegram from Joshua H. Given stating that Given was waiting for transportation for himself and a party of students to be enrolled at the Carlisle Indian School. Pratt notes that Given did not provide an exact number in his telegram so he cannot provide it to the Office. As a result, Pratt requests that transportation be made available to Given that is required to transport all of the students to Carlisle from Purcell, Indian Territory.
