Berthrong Notes. No date but probably 1880 or 1881. From the Cheyenne Transporter.
Arnold, Neatha, Jesse, Jock, Jaah, Theodore and Lester, Arapahoes; and Stanton, Moore, Fletcher, and Carl, Cheyennes, will start to Carlisle tomorrow where they will apprentice themselves at the most useful trade. These boys are too old to be admitted to the Training School and now go east to serve an apprenticeship the same as white boys do. Mr. J.H. Seger suggested this course, explained the matter to the boys and has made most of the arrangements for their going. The boys pay their own traveling  expenses from the sale of cattle or ponies or from money earned from labor and when there will receive no more aid from the Government than they would if they were to remain here.
These young men are already making some money, but they voluntarily relinqish all the pleasures of home and friends and go among strangers, to be absent three years that they may learn a trade that will make them useful men. We have never seen a parallel case among white people, and we doubt whether, everything considered, can be cited that will speak as well for the same number of white boys.

Cheyenne Transporter, Nov. 10, 1880.
Mr. John H. Seger has taken charge of the Arapahoe school instead of going to Hampton as was his intention. Mr. Seger has had several years of experience in Indian schoolwork and his employment is a suffi-guaranty that the Arapahoe school will be a success.

Cheyenne Transporter, Dec. 10, 1880.

Nine years ago there was not a Cheyenne or Arapahoe child in school. Now there are 250 in school here and seventy in the traning school at Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and hundreds of others were accommodations provided for them.
