Description

This letter, dated August 8, 1950, from Commissioner D. S. Myer of the United States (US) Bureau of Indian Affairs to US Representative Usher L. Burdick, refers to Burdick’s letter of July 17, indicating Burdick's “support of the objectives as set forth in the resolution of the Advisory Committee of the Turtle Mountain Chippewas."

Myer explains that with the passage of the appropriation act, “Indian Service funds will be available for carrying on some road work on the reservation,” and concludes with an assurance that the Aberdeen office of the US Bureau of Indian Affairs will do everything possible to assist in placing Turtle Mountain Reservation members in available jobs.

The letter is marked with the handwritten annotation “Indians.”
