This letter, dated April 27, 1956, from United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick to Bigelow Neal of New Town, North Dakota, asks if Neal recalls any newspaper articles regarding the leasing of land on the Fort Berthold Reservation for the purposes of grazing livestock. Burdick says that any information on this matter or any relevant news clippings would be helpful. Burdick also requests any information regarding the retention of hunting, fishing, and grazing rights by members of the Three Affiliated Tribes. Burdick anticipates that he may have some trouble with his bill, US House Resolution 9324 (H. R. 9324).
