Dear. Dr. Viswanathan:

I have read with much interest and appreciation the recent publication by you and your colleagues on the Sitathali meteorite. I am particularly interested in your discussion of the discrepancies between between the chemical analysis and the mineralogical composition of this meteorite. An analysis which I made in 1968 largely resolves these discrepancies. In view of this I have prepared the enclosed manuscript, which I propose to submit for publication in the Mineralogical Magazine. I hope you have no objections. Before doing so, however, I would welcome any comments or suggestions from you or your coauthors.

Sincerely yours,

Eugene Jarosewich
