Dear Don,

     Thank you for your letter of June 7. With respect to the Broken Hill meteorites, I hope to visit Canberra some time during the next twelve months, and would be glad to look at the sections at that time. If there are any that you feel that the need of my opinion, by all means send them to me.

     I am interested to learn that you will be making a renewed excavation at the Browns deposit this year. We would certainly like to have a suite of specimens from this deposit for the mineral collection. The most convenient way to shipp specimens is by parcel post addressed Dept. of Mineral Sciences, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC 20560, ATTN: Dr. B. Mason. However, if the shipment is too large for parcel post, then it can be sent ocean freight according to the enclosed instructions.

     With best regards.

                                 Sincerely yours,

                                 Brian Mason
