This letter dated February 9, 1950 from United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick to Three Affiliated Tribes member Martin Cross states that Burdick's understanding of the situation is that Floyd Montclair's visit to Washington, D.C. was supported by the same group of tribal members who are in support of Martin Cross. Burdick informs Cross that he is willing to give any tribal member a hearing who is willing to come to Washington to state their mind on the land matter. Burdick says that the same goes for Oscar Burr [Burdick refers to Burr as "Oscar Bear" in this letter]. Burdick says that he will keep Cross informed.
