This letter dated May 7, 1948, from United States (US) Senator William Langer to Three Affiliated Tribes member Martin Cross, thanks Cross for sending the two resolutions passed by the Claims Legislative Council. One resolution proposes that no action be taken on the proposed contract between the US and the Fort Berthold Reservation, and the other relates to the the contract drafted by the US War Department. These resolutions are likely in connection with the construction of the Garrison Dam, but they were not enclosed in this document.
A handwritten note on the letter says, "See Indians."
