This telegram, dated April 25, 1956, from United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick to Carl Whitman, Jr. informs Whitman that Burdick does not have the petition that Whitman said had cleared the US Bureau of Indian Affairs. Burdick asks that Whitman send the petition immediately, as US Senate Bill 2151 (S. 2151) comes up Friday or Monday and he will need the petition before then.
