This letter, dated May 15, 1952, from United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick to Nelson Mason is a reply to Mason's letter of May 12, in which Mason asks Burdick's in clearing the deeds on two tracts of land in Richland County on which Mason has received patents from the US Bureau of Land Management.

Burdick writes that he is unsure how to help Mason since Mason has not specified the nature of the error in the two patents. Burdick includes the descriptions of the two patents he obtained from the US Bureau of Land Management and asks Mason to write back explaining exactly what the error in the description was, and to include the legal description for the land for which he made the application for patent.
