On the 2nd. of the months Dickens, one of our
Northern Arapahoe boys died of pneumonia. Dick-
ens was one of the merriest of the company of 
boys who had quarters by themselves and a matron
in charge of them and he will be much missed by the
little family. His aptness to learn and his obedient
spirit endeared him to his teachers aud his death  has
brought a great sadness to our circle. While we
mourn our hearts go out in sympnthy for those at
his home who have anticipated his going to them, to be their pride and joy.
He was the son of Sharp Nose second chief of his tribe and this fact would
have given him much influence among his people
