This letter dated August 5, 1947, from United States Senator William Langer to Harris Grotte acknowledges receipt of Grotte’s recent letter concerning trouble Grotte and his neighbors are having with stray horses in their fields. Langer writes that if Grotte’s fences are being deliberately cut, Grotte should ask the sheriff to make an investigation. Langer pledges to take the matter up with the Indian agency at Elbowoods to see if there is anything that can be done to keep these horses out of Grotte’s fields. Langer promises to get in touch with Grotte as soon as he hears from the Superintendent.
