This letter, dated May 22, 1957, from Acting Commissioner Clifton E. Mack to United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick responds to Burdick's request for barges for use by the Three Affiliated Tribes to cross the Garrison Reservoir which has broken up their reservation and make transportation difficult.

Inquiries are currently being made about barges through the US Bureau of Indian Affairs and the US Department of the Interior. Mack says that he will keep Burdick informed as progress is made.
