In this letter, dated September 21, 1938, from Sargent County, North Dakota (ND) State's Attorney Walter C. King to ND Governor William Langer, King makes reference to the foreclosure case International Harvester Company vs. Edna Rehak, writing that the law firm representing International Harvester has written to him claiming that they have been advised that the moratorium on foreclosure in the case is about to be lifted.

King suggests that Langer contact the Rehaks and find out whether they plan to continue farming. If so, King recommends that the moratorium not be lifted.
