This letter, dated February 3, 1954, from United States (US) Senator William Langer to Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Price of New Town, North Dakota (spelled "Newtown" in this letter) makes reference to a letter Langer has received from the Prices regarding mineral rights on the land flooded by the Garrison Dam.
In this reply, Langer informs the Prices that there is currently a bill before the Public Works Committee of the US Senate, though, he writes, "there is no way of knowing what they will do in Committee." He adds that members of the Tribal Council of the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation visited him several times when they were in Washington, and he did what he could to arrange meetings for them before the US House of Representatives and Senate Interior and Insular Affairs Committees.
