Richard Henry Pratt inquires from the Office of Indian Affairs if he can furnish outing patrons with penalty envelopes for them to mail back outing reports on Carlisle Indian School students. Pratt notes that due to the increase in outing students covering the postage of these reports has become a large expense which could be mitigated through the use of the penalty envelope. In addition, he notes that he can print the penalty on the envelope on the school press.
