These two letter dated April 24, 1942 from Fort Berthold Agency Superintendent William Beyer to R.L. Fraser of Washburn, North Dakota (ND) and E.C. Stucke of Garrison, ND are identical except for the addressees. In them, Beyer explains tro each addressee that United States (US) Senator William Langer "desires statements from local business and professional men as to their opinion on the merits of the Stamp Relief Plan," and requests that he prepare such a statement and mail it to Langer in Washington, D.C.
Beyer adds that he and others at the Fort Berthold Agency are “very enthusiastic over the Stamp Relief Plan” and its benefits, including the elimination of freighting and the lessening of the danger of spoilage.
The letter to Stucke is marked with the handwritten annotation “Stamp Plan.” No annotation appears on the letter to Fraser.
