In this letter from United States Senator William Langer to Frank O. Homme of Minot, Langer replies to Homme's letter of January 9, 1947, expressing the opinion that the lieu lands below the Garrison Dam being offered as compensation to the Three Affiliated Tribes of Fort Berthold for lands they would lose to the Garrison Dam project represented a bad deal for the Tribes.
Langer thanks Homme for his letter and assures him that he "shall do every [he] possibly can to be of help to the Indians."
