This handwritten letter dated June 28, 1950 from Three Affiliated Tribes member Martin Cross to United States (US) Senator William Langer informs Langer that tribal council members Carl Whitman and Mark Mahto and Superintendent Rex W. Z---- (last name illegible) are in Washington, D.C., but they do not speak for Cross's group. Cross asks Langer to not give this group an advantage over the others on the reservation. Cross expresses some concern regarding US Senate Bill 3587 (S. 3587) which he calls "his bill." Cross asks Langer to send him any updates.
