This letter dated October 6, 1952, from Irene Martin Edwards on behalf of United States (US) Senator William Langer to Reverend H. W. Case of the Fort Berthold Mission, makes reference to a letter Langer received from Case and forwarded to the US Office of Legislative Counsel for a determination on whether Case might receive reimbursement for expenses incurred in relocating his church in order to make way for the construction of the Garrison Dam project.
Langer includes with his letter the reply he received from the US Office of Legislative Counsel, which, he regrets to have learned, explains that the law in question, US Public Law 534, does not cover Case's situation.
