This letter, dated July 2, 1952, from United States (US) Senator William Langer to US Bureau of Indian Affairs Commissioner Dillon S. Myer, refers to Fred Burr, who is from the Fort Berthold Reservation of North Dakota but now lives in St. Paul, Minnesota. Burr was forced to sell 400 acres of land on the reservation due to the construction of the Garrison Dam, and would now like to receive his full share of tribal funds in connection with this sale and then "sever relations."
Langer asks Myer to advise him in this matter at his earliest convenience.
