This letter, dated June 5, 1954, from Three Affiliated Tribes elder Martin Fox to United States (US) Senator William Langer expresses frustration over claims made against the US Government by the tribes that remain unpaid. Fox requests that Langer come in person to straighten out any misunderstandings, that Langer provide a truthful answer to the misunderstandings alluded to rather than a "smooth story" from the US Bureau of Indian Affairs, and that Langer forward this letter to "Claims Commissioners" and secure a prompt reply.
