Richard Henry Pratt writes to the Office of Indian Affairs that he agrees with the office's order regarding English in the schools. He notes his disagreement with the missionaries who oppose it. He ends by noting that teaching English will lead to greater emancipation and eliminate interpreters at agencies which would be highly beneficial.
