This letter, dated December 2, 1952, from McKenzie Country Auditor Arne Tollefson to United States (US) Senator William Langer, conveys to Langer the wishes of the McKenzie Country board of commissioners, as expressed in an attached resolution, that a proposed road from the Fort Berthold Reservation to North Dakota road no. 23 be constructed at federal expense, as its construction "is made necessary by the construction of the Garrison Dam and the relocation of the Indian population on the reservation," and because the proposed road "will not be of great use to the people of the county generally."
