This letter, dated May 15, 1951, from United States (US) Senator William Langer to John B. Hart, Executive Director of the North Dakota Indian Commission, refers to a letter Langer has received from Barney Piesek concerning Martin Levings of the Fort Berthold Reservation of North Dakota.
Levings has purchased property from Piesek and would like to receive his share of inundation funds paid by the US government for land inundated by the waters of the Garrison Dam reservoir, so that he can pay for improvements to the property he has purchased from Piesek.
Langer asks Hart to check into the matter and advise Langer on whether it is possible for Levings to withdraw the desired funds to complete his improvements.
