This letter dated January 24, 1951 from United States (US) Representative Usher L. Burdick to Mrs. Albert N. Winge of Van Hook, North Dakota, responds to her letter of January 18, 1951, regarding rent money for land from the Garrison Dam project not being returned to the county and causing problems for school funding. Burdick gives Winge the address of the regional office of the US Bureau of Land Reclamation in Billings, Montana, who, he explains, has jurisdiction over the Garrison Dam area.
Burdick also mentions his opposition to the drafting of essential farm workers, and expresses his hope that her son will be included in the group of Farmer's Union people Burdick will be meeting with the following Tuesday.
