dc.description.transcriptionUNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE AGRICULTURAL ADJUSTMENT ADMINISTRATION Floydada, Texas December 17, 1938. Mr. Oscar E. Monnig, Fort Worth, Texas. Dear Mr. Monnig: - Your letter of November 21st. to hand and noted. Glad you were successful in getting the meteorite, however sorry we did not know of its being here when you were here. We are marking the farm on which it was round in red. South 1/2 of Section 112, Block 1 A. B. & M. As to the one that is supposed to have fallen near the Aiken School house we have round no one that can tell us anything definitely but Mr. W. J. Klinger of Plainview, Texas tells us that some years back he was in a museum in Denver Colorado where a Dr. Nunning had a meteorite about the size or a twelve quart bucket that he had bought years back rom someone east o Plainview. Possibly from some Ranch hand for practically nothing so we think there might be some connection there. Should we learn anything we think would be of interest to you we shall write you. With best regards, O. L. Allen
