This handwritten letter dated April 3, 1947, from A.F. McMaster to United States Senator William Langer, requests some bulletins from the US Department of Agriculture. McMaster conveys that the farmers feel uncertain about the "Indian question" which is likely a reference to the search for lieu lands for the Three Affiliated Tribes who were moved due to construction of the Garrison Dam. McMaster shares that he has been on his homestead since 1904 and would find it very difficult to pay his bills if he were "pushed off" his land.
