Description

This unsigned letter, dated July 13, 1956, from "Commissioner" to Area Director Benjamin Reifel is in reference to United States (US) Public Law 533 which provides for per capita payments to members of the Three Affiliated Tribes. Since the per capita payments authorized by this US Public Law is effectively the last of the funds held in trust for the tribes, the Commissioner would like to ensure that the Secretary is careful to "facilitate the spirit of the act." The Commissioner would like Reifel's views on the matter. A handwritten note on the letter reads, "per capita."
