Description

This telegram dated April 22, 1949 from Three Affiliated Tribes member Ira Waters to United States (US) Senator William Langer asks if Martin Cross has arrived in Washington D.C. yet as he is "our delegate." This is likely a reference to a trip Cross made to Washington, D.C. for a hearing on US House Joint Resolution 33 (H.J. 33) on April 29, 1949. The telegram contains some shorthand notes.

H.J. 33 became Public Law 81-437 or "An Act to Vest Title to Certain Lands of the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation, North Dakota, in the United States, and to provide Compensation Therefor," better known as "The Taking Act."
