This letter dated April 8, 1947 from United States (US) Senator William Langer to Three Affiliated Tribes member Martin Cross thanks Cross for writing in regard to Tribal funds. Langer agrees with Cross that distribution of funds received by the Tribes from the Garrison Dam project should be per capita. Langer says that a copy of a bill he recently introduced in the US Senate is inclosed in the letter. A handwritten note on the letter says, "Indians." This bill was not included with this letter.
