dc.descriptionLetter from Oscar Monnig to George Martin (Postmaster for Guthrie, Oklahoma) stating the interest of the Texas Observers in sending out a circular in the flight path of the Crescent meteorite in order to advise residents to keep an eye out for fragments, and to send them in, as the Observers will buy them. Asks how this should be handled and approximentally how many boxes that would be. Below this is a reply from George Martin outlining how best this would be handed, and how many boxes there would be, though as one covered route is outside his pervue, he advises Monnig to reach out to the Post Master in Crescent for the exact number of boxes on that route.
