This letter dated August 26, 1947, from United States Senator William Langer to Harris Grotte, reports that he has received a reply from the superintendent of the Fort Berthold Agency in Elbowoods, North Dakota to his inquiry on Grotte's behalf regarding fence cutting. Langer quotes a section of the reply. The gist of which is that apparently "both Indians and white operators" have occasionally been involved in fence cutting, and those experiencing property damage must identify the "wire cutters" and file charges against them in court. The superintendent goes on to offer further help if desired.
