489 September 7, 1905. Professor Otis T. Mason, National Museum, Washington, D.C. My dtar [[Dear]] Professor Mason:- I want to apologise for not answering your query concerning Navajo Blankets, sooner. I have been away from the Museum the greater part of the time during the summer and have therefore been unable to keep up with my correspondence. I have not described the double-weave blanket of the Navajos although I have a full description of it for my book which I hope to publish this winter. Dr. Matthews describes one of these textiles in the American Anthropologist and gives a photograph of one in the loom. I am sorry that my material is not in shape for your use but if I can give you any information concerning the work kindly command me. Sincerely yours, Geo. H. Pepper
