Usher Burdick, President of the Farmers' Holiday Association, sent this telegram to Governor William Langer in October 1933 regarding the loss of a farm owned by Mary Patterson of Westhope, North Dakota. The Association sought to end foreclosures on family farms and worked closely with Langer when the Governor enacted a moratorium on farm foreclosures in 1933.
Usher Burdick served in the United States House of Representatives from 1935 to 1945 and from 1949 to 1959.
