Description

This letter, dated April 14, 1947, from United States (US) Senator William Langer to Mrs. Fred Brengle of Denver, Colorado, acknowledges and thanks Brengle for the letter she wrote him on behalf of the Amerind Council.

In this reply, Langer explains that "the engineers have already decided on the construction site for the Garrison Dam, so there is not much I can do about that."

He assures Brengle, however, that he has been doing everything he can to see that the tribes "get a square deal in the matter of their lands which will be used for the reservoir."
