Report on the Health of Rosebud Sioux Students

July 29, 1880

Richard Henry Pratt provides a report on the health of several Rosebud Sioux students. He informs Commissioner of Indian Affairs R. E. Trowbridge that Thigh's son is suffering from tapeworm, and Pratt will send him home if he's still sick when Reverend Robinson, a missionary from Rosebud who's visiting the school, returns to the agency. Kills on Horseback's brother, Conrad (Thunder), is healthy, and Standing Cloud's son, "Ear" (Nathan) is suffering from worms, but the school physician thinks his case is much more minor than Thigh's son's.
