This letter dated December 26, 1935, from Eugene Burdick to John G. Hunter, Superintendent of the Fort Peck Indian Agency, makes inquiry into the estate of Catfish, which is contested by Charles Fool Bear. Eugene Burdick mentions that the case has been referred to him by his father, Usher Burdick, and inquires whether there are any "Indian laws" that would support the claim of a direct heir over heirs named in a will.
