This letter dated May 2, 1951, from United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick to W. A. Pike, informs Pike that the United States Army Corps of Engineers will be taking bids for the job of relocating the Sanish and Van Hook, North Dakota cemeteries. Burdick gives Pike contact information for the Corps of Engineers and tells him if Pike's bid is the lowest, he will receive the contract. There is a handwritten note on the typed letter that says "Sanish." The letter mistakenly addresses a "W. E. Pike," rather than "W. A. Pike." Pike's initials are confirmed by Pike's earlier correspondence. The letter also mistakenly refers to Burdick's "April 30" letter to Pike, which was actually dated "April 20."
