THE WHITE HOUSE

WASHINGTON

 

16 August 1954

My dear Mr. Billie:

This will acknowledge receipt of your letter of June 26, 1954, requesting the President to send a special representative to meet with you.

It is not possible for the President to assign this responsibility to a person who is not connected with the Government. He has, however, asked Mr. Glenn L. Emmons, Commissioner, Bureau of Indian Affairs, to meet with you this fall. Mr. Emmons will advise you at a later date regarding the time when it will be possible for him to meet with you and I am sure that he will be very helpful in resolving some of the questions you have raised.

Sincerely yours,

 

Bernard M. Shanley

Special Counsel to the President

Mr. Ingraham Billie

                Superintendent, Seminole Agency
                Bureau of Indian Affairs
