Arrival of Eleven New Pueblo Students

August 3, 1880

Richard Henry Pratt informs Commissioner of Indian Affairs R. E. Trowbridge that Sheldon Jackson has arrived with eleven new potential Pueblo students. Pratt states that he'll send an official physician report on the students once it is finished. So far, the school doctor has found two students to have lung problems and "a low state of vitality."
