An excursion to Warm Spring opened this edition, titled “The Camp at the Warm Springs” by John Downing (Cherokee). They hiked all day until they reached the Springs, picking black berries along the way and at one point believing they had gotten lost. This proceeded an editorial on the benefits of sending Indian children to school, which was followed in turn by the list of small monthly events. One point mentioned how a Mr. Hays of Washington Pa. was not pleased with the paper. Page four has a short piece from Mary North (Arapahoe) on her want to write a story and her drive to learn. It also had a bit about a trip to Harrisburg, titled “What we do and See” by Josie Vetter (Iowa), and a letter from Joshua H. Given to Mr. Townsend on how Given never wants to leave the white men.
