dc.description.transcription55-8-4 Dear Oscar: There is still another fall that you might enlighte us on. It is Crescent, Locan Co., Okla. (CN= 8976,360). The dossification of this fall is given as "black (caronacious?) chondrite," & you & R. Brown are quoted as authorities (in the Prior-Hey catalog, p. 94, 1952). Since there are , as you know, comparatively few carbonacious-chondrie falls, I should value knowing whether this fall is "carbonacious" or just plain "blac." Any information you may give me will be gratefully received. Best wishes. Sincerely yours, F.C.L.
