This letter dated March 26, 1958 from United States (US) Senator William Langer to Three Affiliated Tribes tribal member Martin Cross informs Cross that Senator [Richard] Neuberger has not yet held a hearing. This is presumably in reference to US Senate Bill 809 (S. 809) which was the subject of their correspondences around this date. Langer says that he is beginning to feel discouraged. Langer indicates that a group from the Standing Rock Reservation is in town and that they are split in their opinions on per capita payments. Langer still wants to see the bill though. Handwritten notes on the letter read, "Cross, Martin" and "S. 809."
