This handwritten letter dated May 2, 1956, from James Black Dog to United States (US) Senator William Langer, encloses a copy of the Fort Berthold Agency News Bulletin and directs Langer to read the Late News Flashes section. This section reports that Martin Cross shared the news that the per capita payment bill passed the US Senate. Black Dog asks Langer how the per capita payment will be made once the bill passes. Black Dog references US House Resolution 10221 (H. R. 10221) which is the same as US Senate Bill 2151 (S. 2151). The letter has a name written on it and a stamp that reads, "Rec'd May 7 1956." The Agency Bulletin is enclosed with this letter.
