This letter, dated May 17, 1952, from Nelson Mason to Albert Funfar of the Register of Deeds office of Richland County, North Dakota refers to homestead entries in Richland County.

In an earlier letter to United States (US) Representative Usher Burckick, Mason had explained to Burdick that he was told by the Richland County Register of Deeds that there was an error in the descriptions of the tracts of land for which he he wished to record deeds, and that the error prevented him from recording the deeds

In this letter Mason explains that "a friend in Congress," has checked and found that the descriptions agree with the US Bureau of Land Management records for the tracts. As a result, Mason writes, he is at a loss as to where any error appears in these legal descriptions and asks that Funfar point out said error.

Mason notes as well that copies have been sent to the US Bureau of Land Management, US Representative Usher Burdick, and John Bradford.
