This letter dated February 25, 1948, from United States (US) Senator William Langer to Three Affiliated Tribes member Martin Cross, acknowledges a recent telegram from Cross and informs him that there will be no additional hearings regarding US Senate Bill 1133 with amendment. Langer indicates that the bill is on the US president's desk and that he anticipates favorable news shortly.
