Richard Henry Pratt recommends returning two students from the Sioux Nation. The first is Lawrence due to ill health and the second is Philip Good Voice due to a request from his father and his current home sickness which may lead to poor health in the future.
Richard Henry Pratt notes that there is an immediate need to return home Lawrence due to a decline in his health. If their proposed escort cannot leave soon then Pratt advises having a conductor accompany Lawrence and Philip Good Voice. However, he needs authority to pay the expense.
Richard Henry Pratt seeks an additional $300 for returning students to their homes in Indian Territory. He notes that fulfilling the obligations already authorized by the Commissioner of Indian Affairs would exhaust his current funding.
Richard Henry Pratt suggests that the Indian Office arrange transportation for Lawrence and Philip Good Voice to return home under the care of Dr. Faulkner. He notes that he has not been provided orders Sioux City and Pacific Rail Road which is subsidized.
Dr. W. H. Faulkner reports that he has arrived at the Yankton Agency returning both Charley Mills and Daniel Mandan along with the body of Lawrence. He ends his report that he will continue to Rosebud in order to deliver Philip Good Voice home.
