This handwritten letter from Three Affiliated Tribes member Martin Cross to United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick clarifies to Burdick that Cross is not sponsoring any delegate to Washington D.C. to represent his views on his behalf, so that any delegate asking for help is "doing it on their own hook," not on behalf of Cross. Cross further discusses the Three Affiliated Tribes vote regarding US Public Law 437 and other related issues.
