Dear John,

     Thank you for your letter of September 8. I am glad to learn that Mr. Fitzgerald is preparing a comprehensive description of the Muckera meteorite, and I understand your reluctance to release material until his research is completed. However, we certainly would like to have this meteorite represented in our collection, and welcome your suggestion of an eventual exchange.

     With best regards.
                                 Sincerely yours,

                                 Brian Mason
