This letter dated April 26, 1948, from United States (US) Senator William Langer to Joseph Wicks, mentions a plan that Three Affiliated Tribes member Martin Cross proposed for several reservations. The plan has the approval of the "Indian Bureau" (likely meaning the US Bureau of Indian Affairs). Langer advises that Wicks submit the plan to the Indian Agencies in North Dakota. Details of the plan are not discussed in the letter.
A handwritten note on the letter says, "See Indians."
