dc.description.transcription1948, Sep. 4. George H. Marley said this man had fragments. 1948, Nov. 28. Mr. Leo Morris, Blida, New Mexico. Dear Mr. Morris: Thru our interest in meteorites, we secured shortly before the war a large stone meteorite that I think you are familiar with, from Scurry County. It was my understanding that you had some fragments borken [broken] off this piece, and I wondered whether I could secure them from you. I would of course be willing to pay you for them. My reason is that in order to study this meteorite properly, some of is should be cut off and analyzed. The main stone 1s so large that it would be a cumbersone [cumbersome] and expensive job to set it up in position in a rock saw, and 1£ we could get some small pieces, they might do just as well as something cut off the main stone. I hope I shall hear from you. I would like to know the size and weights of the pieces you have. Yours most sincerely,
