Good Morning Elbert:
Again I want to express my thanks and delight in receiving the meteorite specimens for exchange.
The Smyer is most unusual and interesting. Will your paper on Smyer be in Meteoritics? I certainly will look for it.
Yesterday under seperate cover I posted the following:
1. WAYSIDE 71.4 gms
2. LAKEWOOD 77 gms
3. LAZBUDDIE 119 gms
4. NAZARETH 143 gms
5. GALACIA 55.5 gms
6. PASAMONTE 6.6 gms
I sincerely hope these will be of some interest. I hope to make up the weight differential as soon as I can. Do not hesitate to comment freely, I am a tyro and could use lots of advice. Anything on my list which I can conveniently cut is available to you.
If you are happy with the material sent and wish further exchanges, the following would be very desirable to me:
I did not see Plainview on your list. Oversight? I have some nice individuals 250/500 gm size I can spare.
I am most anxious to receive your comments. I will soon be equipped to cut and polish, so the specimens will appear nicer.
Have a good day.
Enclosed - Some mail you might wish to investigate - would gladly enter any arrangement to share expenses on anything purchased - Jim
