This letter dated April 14, 1941, from United States Senator William Langer to William Beyer marks the receipt of Beyer’s letter from April 8, 1941, and informs Beyer that four more counties were placed on the Stamp Plan on April 10, 1941. The letter states that four counties still have not been placed on the Food Stamp Plan, all of which “have Indian population.” The letter remarks that “a scheme has been fixed up” that will treat the Reservation as an institution, which will result in “all the Indians except those on WPA or some other work getting stamps.” The letter concludes with Langer stating that he is working with Milo Perkins in an effort to be of assistance. The letter is CC-ed to John Collier.
