Richard Henry Pratt writes to Chief White Thunder about the funeral ceremony and burial of his son, Ernest. Pratt expresses his sorrow and sympathy at White Thunder's loss, but also argues that White Thunder was right to send Ernest to the school.
Pratt notes that Maud (Little Girl) died the same night as Ernest, so they were buried at the same time. Therefore this presumably describes her funeral as well.
