This letter dated February 11, 1947, from J. E. Sullivan, of Garrison Real Estate Company in Garrison, North Dakota, to United States Senator William Langer, asks Langer to write to John F. McDermott, who holds an option on a few lots with the intent to build a hotel in Garrison.
Sullivan says that due to the [O'Mahoney] amendment to the appropriation bill funding construction of the Garrison Dam, McDermott is no longer "on the same" as there is "no telling when the Indians will be removed" and requests that Langer write to McDermott to "explain the matter in full as to the Indians and money."
This letter contains a handwritten signature from Sullivan.
