CAPT.R. H. PRATT, January 23rd. 1891.
DEAR SIR:-In this letter, I send you a picture of the battle that occured at Wounded Knee last month. I went to the battlefield, after it was over to pick up the bodies into a wagon to bring to the Agency-that is, the wounded ones. I see in the HELPER that Mack Kutepi, Paul Eagle Star, and some other Carlisle students were killed in the fight. Whoever wrote that letter must have been scared at the time he wrote the letter. Mack Kutepi, Paul Eagle Star, and the others are here, none of them killed as the HELPER stated. That is I want to tell you.
Your Friend, MOSES CULBERTSON.
The photographs sent by Moses, were views of Wounded Knee Battlefield, taken shortly after the fight, the bodies of those killed still on the field.

|Carlisle Herald 1/16/91
news of death of Paul Eagle Star.
| Nicholas Ruleau who went home recently and is employed
at the Pine Ridge Agency Boarding School says, "John Rooks was working
in a saw-mill and by accident ran his left hand to the saw so that the
saw cut his hand off near to his wrist. Paul Eagle Star died in
Europe while traveling with Buffalo Bill. A horse threw him off and broke
his ankle so a Dr. cut his foot off and he died a few days after. I am
getting along right well with my work."
