This letter, dated March 30, 1949, from United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick to Mrs. A. N. Winge concerns the pool level of Garrison Dam. The letter acknowledges Winge's previous letter. It then states that the previous day, an amendment that would have forbade the US Army Engineers from purchasing land above the 1,830 foot level was defeated in the US House. The letter then states that Burdick has no trust in the US Army Engineers and that he believes US Representative William Lemke and US Senator William Langer feel the same way and that, though they are outnumbered, they will continue to fight against the unfair practices of the US Army Engineers with regard to the Garrison Dam project.
