This letter, dated January 2, 1953, from United States (US) Senator William Langer to McKenzie Country Auditor Arne Tollefson, references their recent correspondence regarding the highway construction, and includes a reply Langer received from Lt. Col. Reginald J. B. Page of the US Army Corps of Engineers, Garrison District, regarding the question of building the proposed road at federal expense.
In the attached reply from Page, Page explains that, because the proposed road lies outside the boundaries of the reservation, he has no funding or authority to include such a road in the Fort Berthold road construction project.
