This letter dated May 23, 1950, from Executive Director of North Dakota Indian Affairs Commission John B. Hart to United States Senator William Langer thanks Langer for the assistance he provided to Hart with the United State Indian Bureau on the proposed purchase of land outside exterior boundaries of the Fort Berthold Reservation. The letter states Hart’s opinion that land purchased outside reservation boundaries is “a pretty hot subject” along with Hart’s opinion about how such purchases will alter property taxes and the difficulties facing future purchasers of reservation land.
