Henry Roman Nose left last week for Carlisle.
When at school there, he commenced the tinner's trade, but not having completed
it, he felt incompetent of taking charge of a shop. The tools are
in the commisary ready for use when he returns. The day he left he
sent his little nephew, aged five, to the school with a note asking that
he be cared for while he was away.
January 10, 1990 INDIAN HELPER
Roman Nose want to start a tin-shop at Cantonment, Indian Territory.
We trust he will be able to get all the tin he needs to do it.
Henry C. Roman Nose, one of the Florida prisoners, from Cheyenne Agency, who came to Carlisle when the school first opened in 1879, and remained two years, says he lives in a square tent covered with duck. It is his own. He has never worn Indian dress since he went back, and is now serving the Government as tinner, the trade he learned at Carlisle. He receives $20 a month.

...schools filled to over 70 pupils in attendance. The Cheyennes came in
large numbers for a talk with me. 5 Companies of "Dog Soldiers" being
present a part of whom came mounted and drawn up in line firing Winchesters
into the air( in demonstration of joy, I suppose). Among their first
questions was, " Are you afraid?" I said "No". Short speeches were made by
No-com-is-tah, Red Lodge, Whirlwind, Little Medicine, Little Big Jake,
Howling Wolf, Little Man, Medicine Crazy, Roman Nose Thunder, Left Hand
Woman, White Horse, Man-on-Cloud, and Star. The burden of which was
self-praise for their conduct, request for a feast, and to ask that beef
issues be made weekly hereafter( in recognition, I suppose, of their
distinqished favors, they ask me to write their speeches.....I gave them a
small feast from the commissary and will send a copy of the speeches later.
Some of the whites think I need not have received them in council. There was
no real use, but for peaces sake I listened patiently, and they went away
pleased. I believe that all the new scholars reside in the Sub-Agency.
