Chilson, of Deering, North Dakota, urges United States Senator William Langer to use his influence to have the Garrison Dam Project "opened for restudy," and to then try to get the site of the dam "located where the Indians wish instead of instead of forcing them out of their homes once more and breaking a treaty with them."
