Dear Mr. Balasundaram:

Thank you for your gracious letter of September 21. May I again say that it was a great pleasure to meet with you and Mr. Sundaram and to cooperate on the Lonar paper and then especially to have you both here in Washington.

I'm delighted to learn that the areal photos have been released. I discussed the detailed requirements for prints with Mr. Dube and I'm sure he remembers which frames to use etc.

Our paper has been reviewed by the USGS people and official approval should be at hand within days. I'll then personally take the package to one of the Science editors and I hope they will accept the paper as well as the areal photo.

I shall let you know the outcome as soon as possible. Until then, please accept my warmest personal regards.

Sincerely yours,

Kurt Fredriksson
Department of Mineral Sciences
