dc.description.transcriptionOscar E. Monnig 29 Chelsea Drive Fort World, Texas 76134 Amateaur Astronomy Specializing in Meteorites Dear Paul, I’m pleased to hear of your Deport work. I’d guess our average in from there is 4 oz of iron. Many of them have rusted considerably and they seem to do worse when boxed up. I think chlorine is reduced and keeps working on them. I am not familiar with the two farms you named but have the the “strewn field” lies mostly east of Shadowland. I never could get these locations from most the the meteors. They apparently feared we would come work their “shots” and call them out. There are some fragments of old iron tools on tractor front that you have to be careful not to buy. You can mostly tell by the shape. I have made a note of 4 trips on the Oct 18th fireball but firstly wait by again until in January. Will let you know. No wind from up there. Bob and I have each been very busy in work. OEM
