Dear Dr. Clarke,

       Thank you for your letter of September 9th, and comments on the USNM collection of IVB meteorites.

       I appreciate your point about the exhibit specimens of Ternera and Iquique, it would be a pity to take samples from such specimens.

       I agree with you that Weaver Mountains may only duplicate my results on Tawallah Valley, a better approach at this time would seem to be to examine specimens which are obviously different from those I have already investigated.  It may be possible to borrow Weaver Mountains and Skookum Gulch later for a purely optical examination.

       With sincere thanks,



                         [[underline]]Richard A. Jago.[[underline]]
