This letter dated November 19, 1954, from United States (US) Senator Langer to Carl Whitman Jr., of Parshall, North Dakota on the Fort Berthold Reservation, refers to Whitman's November 9 letter. Langer addresses a misunderstanding of a comment he made regarding recent hearings in North Dakota. Langer assures Whitman ongoing efforts are being made by the subcommittee staff, including planned conferences with the US Bureau of Indian Affairs, the US Federal Housing Administration, the Banking and Currency Committee of the US Senate, "and various other agencies dealing specifically with the problems that were raised in the four hearings in North Dakota," and that his subcommittee is studying possible legislature to correct the problems.
Langer closes by assuring Whitman that "this Subcommittee will do everything within its power to solve the many problems confronting the Indian people both in North Dakota and throughout the country."
