Description

This letter dated August 6, 1947, from United States Senator William Langer to Acting Superintendent of the Fort Berthold Agency Ben Reifel brings to Reifel’s attention Harris Grotte’s letter from August 5, 1947, regarding stray horses grazing on Grotte’s land. The letter states that Grotte believes “someone is deliberately cutting his fences and that Indian horses are getting into his fields.” The letter asks Reifel if he has any further information in regard to this matter, or if there are any steps that can be taken to protect Grotte’s fields. The letter refers to an enclosed letter but does not include that enclosed letter.
