This letter, dated February 13, 1952, from United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick to Mrs. S. L. Krag of Minot, North Dakota is a reply to Mrs. Krag's letter of January 28 concerning the effects of the Garrison Dam on the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation.
Burdick writes that he called the Indian Bureau immediately after receiving her letter and asked for the information she requested, including booklets and pamphlets, and was told they would be sent promptly. After not receiving them, Burdick contacted the department again and was told that the department handling such requests was being taken over by a new chief, which had resulted in many delays.
He writes in closing that he hopes Krag receives the relevant documents in time to prepare her paper for her club on February 28.
