August 9, 1977 AIRMAIL Miss J. Scrymgour South Australian Museum North Terrace Adelaide, Australia 5000 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 BM/ks
