This handwritten letter, dated June 3, 1950, from Three Affiliated Tribes member Martin Cross to United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick informs Burdick that Cross requested a hearing for US House Resolution 8411 (H. R. 8411) for June 15th. Cross says that he will go to Washington D.C. for the hearing since it apparently cannot be held on the reservation. Cross wants to have the hearing before the election date.
