This letter, dated May 13, 1955, from Assistant Secretary of the United States (US) Department of the Interior Fred Aandahl to US Senator William Langer describes a meeting held regarding distribution of funds held in trust for the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation. Aandahl encloses a draft of a bill, which he says was drafted in response to Langer's request, to provide for the segregation of these funds based on the tribal membership rolls. A handwritten note at the top of the letter reads, "S. 2151" in reference to US Senate Bill 2151. A copy of the draft of the bill is enclosed with the document.
