This is probably either Alfred Brown (Cheyenne, 1879-1883) or Alfred Charko (Wichita, 1882-1883), but there is a chance it could be a student named Alfred who attended Carlisle a little later in the 1880s or 1890s.
Richard Henry Pratt writes that the father of Alfred Brown requests his son be sent home in order to see him due to his illness. Pratt also notes that Clement Black Deer is ill and will require some time to recover and may benefit from being sent home as well.
