In this letter, dated October 20, 1951 from United States (US) Senator William Langer to Lillie Wolf of Elbowoods, North Dakota, Langer makes reference to a reply he has received from the US Department of the Interior in response to an inquiry he has made on Wolf's behalf regarding the inundation of her property by the Garrison Dam.
Langer refers to the reply he received being enclosed with his letter to Wolf, but there was no enclosure attached to this letter when it was found in the Langer Papers.
Note: while Langer spells Wolf's first name "Lily," Wolf's own signature on other documents spell it "Lillie".
