Description

This letter dated May 7, 1952, from United States (US) Senator William Langer to A.N. Winge of Van Hook, North Dakota, marks the receipt of Winge’s letter from April 28, 1952. The letter notes “it is extremely difficult to advise you concerning this matter from this end.” The letter conveys to Winge “an action has been instituted in the [United States’] Federal Court for the condemnation of the land and under such circumstances there is nothing that anyone here can do to be of help.” The letter advises Winge to procure a private attorney to “look after your interest and he really is the only one that can do anything for you.” The letter expresses that Langer will help Winge if her private attorney “runs into some snag.” The letter concludes by assuring Winge that she should get in touch with him if there is anything further he can be helpful in. The letter includes the all caps annotations “DICTATED BY H.A. MACKOFF” and “GARRISON DAM.”
