This letter dated November 10, 1952, from Legislative Assistant Laura Page Knudson on behalf of United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick to Sam Stern, Grand Exalted Ruler of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, responds to Stern's letter of November 4 which enclosed a letter from former North Dakota resident and self-described "member of the Sioux tribe of Indians" George S. Stephenson. Knudson writes that Burdick is in North Dakota but that she will bring the letters to his attention when he returns, closing with an affirmation of Burdick's commitment to "the welfare of the Indians."
