Description

This letter dated September 11, 1946, from United States (US) Senator William Langer to Floyd Montclair of the National American Indian Association, marks the receipt of Montclair’s letter from August 27, 1946. Langer calls Montclair’s attention to the distribution of “the four hundred thousand dollars awarded to the Fort Berthold Indians” by citing the Interior Appropriation Bill (US Public Law 478) along with the provision of HR 1095 (US Public Law 467), along with how this money will be distributed through the US Treasury. Langer says there “is no provision by law” that would distribute this money per capita, although he will be “glad to introduce a bill” that distributes the sum per capita. Langer mentions three enclosures, US Public Laws 467, 478, and 143; only US Public Law 467 is included.
