This letter, dated April 24, 1956, from Josephine Poetz of Parshall, North Dakota on the Fort Berhold Reservation, to United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick, appears to be part of a letter-writing campaign in support of US Senate Bill 2151 (S. 2151) and per capita payments. Poetz writes,"We have been waiting for this money a long time," and will appreciate any help Burdick can offer in getting it to them. About half a dozen similar letters were in Burdick's files.
