This letter dated March 21, 1952, from United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick to North Dakota State Highway Commissioner S. W. Thompson, replies to Thompson's earlier letter concerning Lost Bridge Road. Burdick says he has met with John Hart to discuss the issue and that funding for the road will be addressed at a later time. Burdick indicates he supports building the road, provided it does not cost too much, because the Fort Berthold tribal members deserve a road in the area they are being forced to relocate to.
