This letter, dated March 27, 1957, from United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick to Owen Morken, Superintendent of the Indian Agency, refers to an enclosed letter from James Black Dog in which Black Dog appeals for financial help for Lorraine Perkins (missspelled as "Lorainne Perkin") to have running water installed in the home she has purchased in Minot. Burdick asks Morken for information on how to help Black Dog's sister.
The letter Burdick refers to as being enclosed was not found with this document in the Burdick papers.
Note: In Morken's reply to this letter he uses the spelling "Lorraine Perkins." Since he also references Perkins' bank account information, the spelling he uses in his reply seems most likely to be the correct spelling, and is therefore the spelling used in this and related entries.
