Description

This letter, dated November 25, 1952, from United States (US) Senator William Langer to Dillon S. Myer, Commissioner of the US Bureau of Indian Affairs, makes reference to an enclosed letter Langer has received from Marjorie Slocum of Elbowoods on the Fort Berthold Reservation in North Dakota, concerning problems Slocum faces in her relocation from Elbowoods due to the pending inundation of her home by the rising waters of the Garrison Dam reservoir.

Langer writes that he is forwarding Slocum's letter for Myer's attention, and asks to hear from Myer at his "early convenience," and that Myer return Slocum's letter with his reply.

The letter from Slocum referred to as enclosed was not found with this letter in Langer's papers.
