In this letter, dated February 24, 1919 from L. F. Hinegardner of Sarles, North Dakota (ND) to ND Attorney General William Langer, Hinegardner refers to the case in which Hiram Stepp was accused of the statutory rape of F******* D**, which Hinegardner feels was handled improperly. Hinegardner expresses impatience as he waits for promised information from Langer, saying it looks as though Langer has "laid down on the job." He also claims that Langer has shared information with other parties that he told Hinegardner he would not share. Hinegardner concludes that he hopes to receive the promised "big letter" written by Grimson by return mail.
