Description

This letter, dated January 2, 1952, from United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick to Mrs. A. M. Winge concerns the pool level of Garrison Dam. In it, Burdick explains that, when Wenge's previously letter arrived, he was in the hospital at Williston. He assures Winge that he is doing all he can to prevent the US Army Engineers from taking land above the 1,830 foot level, at which the pool would not affect Van Hook, and concludes by stating that he does not believe the US Army Engineers will win in court.
