Description

This handwritten letter, dated May 27, 1954, from Three Affiliated Tribes Tribal Chairperson Martin Cross to United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick provides a report on Cross's appeal of the denial of a proposed $200 per capita payment. Cross writes that he saw Secretary Douglas McKay on May 26, but McKay said that he did not know anything about it. Cross said than in a subsequent meeting with several people from the US Bureau of Indian Affairs he did not succeed in overturning the rejection of the proposed per capita payment. Cross mentions enclosing a copy of the letter he sent to McKay, but the enclosed letter was not found with this document in Burdick's papers.
