These correspondences, dated September 1 and September 2, 1955 between C. J. Barry and Laura Page Knudson from United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick's office concern the sale of tribal land to non-tribal members. Barry requests that the matter be looked into or delayed as tribal members received very little notice of the sale. Knudson replies that the intended sale was listed in New Town news over a month ago, so the tribal members had plenty of notice. A news clipping entitled "Ft. Berthold Agency Sale of Noncompetent Indian Lands" was included with these correspondences.
