This telegram dated June 9, 1954, from United States Senator William Langer to Three Affiliated Tribes Tribal Chairperson Martin Cross, tells Cross that Langer will do all that he can. This is likely in reply to Cross's June 5th telegram which asked Langer if he could help stop the oil and gas leases on land taken from the Three Affiliated Tribes for the Garrison Dam. A handwritten not on the telegram reads, "Cross, Martin."
