This letter dated August 6, 1947, from United States (US) Senator William Langer to Acting Superintendent of the Fort Berthold Agency Ben Reifel brings to Reifel’s attention Harris Grotte’s letter of August 5, 1947, regarding stray horses grazing on Grotte’s land. Grotte believes that someone is deliberately cutting his fences allowing stray tribal horses to get into his fields.
Langer asks Reifel for further information in regard to this matter, and for any steps that can be taken to protect Grotte’s fields. Grotte's letter, which Langer refers to as being enclosed, was not found with this letter in Langer's papers.
