Dr. John K. Ling, Director

Dear Dr. Ling,

    Mr. R. Bruce Wilson has written that he accepts our offer of a specimen of the Woodbine, Illinois, meteorite. A copy of his letter and my response is enclosed. I believe that this will close the matter as far as we are concerned.

    You will see that I have asked Mr. Wilson to send the specimen to you for registration. I hope he will do this, but I do not feel that I am now in a position to insist.
