May I also mention that I have spent a large part of the last year conducting macroscopic studies of stony meteorites in a number of collections in Europe and the U.S.  It would be of the greatest value for me once again to have the opportunity to see your magnificent collection and perhaps assist with a few problems which I believe might exist in the identification of a few specimens.  Perhaps also the fruitful cooperation in the study of selected meteorites can be rejuvenated.  I'm enclosing an abstract of a paper, which is now in galley proof, for the "Smithsonian Contribution to the Earth Sciences".

Again, if my proposition is agreeable to you I shall deeply appreciate a confirmation from your office at your earliest convenience.  The processing through our funding office is not always too rapid.

With my best personal regards, I remain,

Sincerely yours,

Kurt Fredriksson
Division of Meteorites
