This letter, dated June 9, 1955, from H. J. Goddard, publisher of the Dickey County Leader of Ellendale, North Dakota to United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick thanks Burdick for his recent letter and kind words regarding the Leader's handling of the Garrison Reservoir pool level issue. Goddard notes that credit should go to Goddard's son, Malcolm, a recent journalism graduate from the University of North Dakota. Goddard writes that he believes Burdick is correct about the dam's pool level and adds that he does not approve of asking officials to weigh in on the topic when they do not know enough about it.
