Title

Description

A draft of a letter from trustees of Pacific University in support of keeping the Indian Training School in Forest Grove. This draft is not addressed, but the letter was probably sent to the United States Secretary of the Interior. It describes the accomplishments of the school so far, including the teaching of English (noting "no other [language] is allowed among them"), Christianization of the students, and vocational training. The draft names five of the eleven members of the Board of Trustees as signatories: Alanson Hinman, Horace Lyman, George H. Atkinson, Obed Dickinson, and G. H. Collier.
