have your letter of July 28. You are correct in your assumption
that our meetings gave the Commissioners and staff a clear sense
of the need to proceed with a prompt and equitable settlement
of the native land claims, and I agree that the meetings helped
to bring the issue more sharply into focus.
to the transcript of our Alaska meetings, which we have just received, it
is available for review in our office by anyone who
wants to do so. Several federal agency officials have done
so, in connection with our earlier meetings. Unfortunately,
we do not have funds to print and distribute the proceedings.
However, we will prepare a summary report of the meetings. In
the event you have need of a copy of the transcript, a copy
may be purchased from the Lyon Reporting Service, 1228‑30
East 7th Avenue, Anchorage, Alaska.
