November 8, 1946

Ben Dwight, Acting Executive Secretary 
National Congress of American Indians 
Office of the Governor - State Capitol 
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Dear Mr. Dwight:

Your thoughtful letter inviting me to attend the National Congress of American Indians came during my absence in Chicago. I regret that I have been unable to take advantage of the opportunity of being present at the meeting of Indians from all over the country in their assembled Congress.

I hope that the meeting has terminated advantageously and that the opportunity of the Congress to be of service is extended thereby.

With kind personal regards, I am

Sincerely yours,
