October 1885 MORNING STAR

Our Appeal Responded to.
A few weeks ago we printed an appeal for books and papers for the Young Men's Aid Society, at Cantonment, Indian Territory.
We are glad to hear through the following letter that our appeal is responded to. Books and papers on agriculture are especially desired :
June 16 1889.
We want to thank you for asking for books, etc. for our library, and also to thank those  friends who so quickly answered our
We have received several books and papers from Horace Griscom, Miss Annie Griscom, E. Wilson, Miss Leverett
F. Caldwell and others, which we appreciate:
and we promise our white friends to try and improve from them and also help our poor people who are yet in dark ways, wearing blankets and do not know English. But we hope we will all some day be just the same as the white men, earning our
living and making good homes.  We have many things to keep us back. Many of the camp Indians make bad at us because we are trying to work and be men. But we are not afraid of them and we are   on to what Carlisle taught us and our
good friend Mr. Potter who has started us all   , and we are very sorry he is going away, but we will try and
go along as we have started.
your old school boys,

Officers of the Young Men's Aid Society,
