This letter dated May 23, 1951, from Acting Forth Berthold Agency Director H. Tobias to United States (US) Senator William Langer, refers to a brief meeting held between Langer and a delegation, including Fort Berthold Highway Engineer Ralph M. Shane, who are working on a proposed road between the Lost Bridge and Killdeer, North Dakota (ND). Tobias mentions that a copy of the Fort Berthold Reservation's Road Replacement Plan was used during the meeting, but he did not believe a copy was left with Langer and is therefore forwarding a copy to Langer for his information and reference.
Tobias goes on to relate that the delegation's meeting with ND Governor Norman Brunsdale and ND State Highway Commissioner S. W. Thompson seemed "quite impressed" with the value of the proposed connection to the State Highway System and with its potential humanitarian value for the families who live in this large and otherwise inaccessible area.
