This letter, dated April 5, 1949, from United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick to Jerry Crouse concerns the effects of the Garrison Dam pool level. Burdick writes that he remembers hunting deer on Crouse's land, and goes on to say that Crouse should sell that land for the best deal that he can get since the vote to prohibit any land purchases over 1,830 feet failed to pass by 9 votes. Burdick adds that Langer and Young are trying to pass a similar bill in the US Senate.
