Dear Dr. Fredriksson,

We are working on Fission Track Dating of natural minerals.  We have come to know from Dr. M. Corkell (Canada) that you have dated some meteorites and lunar rocks.

It will be very kind of you if you can supply some specimen (meteorites and lunar rocks) and the relevant literature for our study.  We assure you that the results will be communicated to you before publication.

With best regards,

Yours sincerely,
