Well it would be pretty hard to have the stuff right under your nose and not get a peep at it but it will be better to wait until I can be with you if you can possibly do it as we can then sort the material according to locality and thereby save double handling. I will not have them shipped however until I hear from you as you are the one to say what is to be done.

Andrus passed through here on his way to Albuquerque and said that the mask deal was off. He was not able to handle them so there was no need of going further. He thought that he had the [[mrtter?]] cinched but the saddle mush have slipped.

I will be in Albuquerque about a week, possibly less if I can finish up the photographing of the Chimallo and Navajo blankets sooner, and while there will look through the Harvey collection and find out whether there is anything that you want for your Museum.

The mail is ready to go so must close up with a rush. Will write later and let you know more about plans and future work.

As ever, yours in haste,
