dc.description.transcriptionRead 1941 10/21 Comanche, Tex, Dear Mr. Monnig I have in my possession what I believe to be a meteorite- either stony or stony-iron it measures approx. 48 to 51 cm in circumference and weighs 255 3.4 lbs, I’m enclosing small sample for your analysis, this was discovered in Scurry Co. in 1937 in a ditch where erosion has uncovered it and was first noted because of its unusual weight and the fact that no other stones were like it in that vicinity. Naturally, if this is of value I should like to realize as much for the stone as I can - especially as I was out considerably time and trouble in locating it - and quite a bit of expense in acquiring it. Would be please to hear from you if interested or if convenient would be glad for you to drop by. I live 6 miles N of Comanche out Beathe Road Sincerely H. M. O’Brien P. S. The enclosed sample was described as a meteorite by Dr. Scoch I believe it was of Austin. O’B.
