This letter dated September 15, 1952, from Reverend H. W. Case of the Fort Berthold Mission to United States (US) Senator William Langer, makes reference to a new law that allows for people displaced by the construction of Garrison Dam to be reimbursed for moving expenses. Case argues that because the church cooperated with the US Army Corp of Engineers and did not the initial settlement, it is now being penalized in not being covered by the new law allowing for reimbursement of moving expenses.
Case closes by asking Langer's advice in the matter and requesting a copy of the law in question.
