dc.description.transcriptionSMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION UNITED STATES NATIONAL MUSEUM WASHINGTON 25. D. C. April 13, 1962 Mr. Oscar E. Monnig 29 Chelsea Drive Fort Worth 15, Texas Dear Oscar: Back in 1959 we had some correspondence with a Mrs. H. R. Wilson, Box 464, Forestburg, Texas regarding a meteorite she had which came from a point about 33° 25' 97° 43', and she sent me a small piece. referred her to you and told her that this specimen could be related to Travis Co., McKinney, Naruna, Allen or La Villa because all of these were found not far away. Although I have the specimen she sent, weight 8 grams, I wonder what has happened to the rest. Did you get it and if you did, what is the name it is known by today? Did you ever find time to look up for me any information you collected on the Harleton meteorite trajectory? Hope things are going nicely for you, and with kindest regards to all, I am Cordially yours, E. P. Henderson Associate Curator Division of Mineralogy and Petrology
