This letter, dated June 27, 1950, from Irene Martin, secretary for United States (US) Senator William Langer, to H. E. Gierke of Watford City, North Dakota, is a reply to Gierke's letter of June 18 regarding a number of matters he feels are unsatisfactory, including the lack of information provided to members of the Three Affiliated Tribes of the Fort Berthold Reservation so that they can make decisions about how to proceed in vacating their lands to be inundated by the Garrison Dam project, the lack of roads needed for tribal members to log the forested areas of the reservation to be inundated, and the making of Farmer's Home Administration loans to tribal members who, he says, have not had the necessary instruction in maintenance of farm equipment.
Martin assures Gierke that his concerns will be relayed to Langer.See also:
