Description

This letter likely written in February of 1955, based on the visit described, from Ben Youngbird and Carl Whitman Jr. to United States (US) Senator William Langer, written from the Madison Hotel in Washington, D.C., refers to unsuccessful attempts to contact Langer.

Youngbird and Whitman refer to a desperate situation and write that the US Bureau of Indian Affairs refuses to help due to regulations. They ask to see Langer before he leaves for North Dakota or to accompany him to North Dakota. They write they don't know who to turn to.
