REF. NO /43B/75/36-Pet.            Dated The September 19, 1975

From:

Dr. S P Das Gupta
Director
Petrology Division.

Dear Dr. Garg,

I read with interest the programme of your work given in your letter dated July 10, 1975.  The quantity of the Bholghati meteorite available in our collection is very much depleted.  In order to avoid total depletion of meteorites in our collection we are distributing meteorites only on exchange basis.  Please let us know if you can spare any meteorite of this type in exchange of one you asked for.  Possibly you may also send us a copy of list of meteorites available in your collection and on that case we shall be able to tell you the meteorite in which we will be interested.

Furthermore, our record shows that sample of this meteorite has been given to the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC in U S A.  Meanwhile you may also like to explore the possibility of getting your required quantity from them.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

With regards, 

Yours sincerely.
