In this letter, dated January 9 1947, from Frank O. Homme of Minot, North Dakota to United States Senator William Langer, Homme expresses his opinion that the proposed lieu lands below Garrison do not represent a good deal for the members of the Three Affiliated Tribes of Fort Berthold, North Dakota.
