This letter, dated April 18, 1953, from United States (US) Senator William Langer to Bigelow Neal of Sanish, North Dakota, makes reference to a letter Langer received from Neal regarding "the situation existing in the Garrison reservoir area."
In this letter, Langer replies to Neal, saying that he has conferred with US Representative Usher Burdick, and respectfully suggests that Neal follow the advice he received from Burdick. Langer adds that he has also enlisted the help of "the entire bunch of lawyers working for the Judiciary Committee" and they arrived at the same conclusion as Burdick did. "We may not win," Langer says, "but it seems to be our very best approach and is worth pursuing to the end."
