Dear Miss Scrymgour,

    I recently got a copy of the newly-published "Appendix to the Catalogue of Meteorites" (British Museum). In itsthere is listed a howardite from South Australia named Muckera. I am preparing a review article on eucrites and howardites, and would like to examine as many of them as possible. Could you send me a small piece of Muckera (sufficient to prepare a thin section)?

    With best regards,

                                 Sincerely yours,

                                 Brian Mason
                                 Curator
                                 Department of Mineral Sciences
