Gentlemen:

Please find enclosed a photostat copy of a letter from Dr. Barnum Brown, American Museum of Natural History, New York, in regard to trucking of a dinosaur specimen from New York to Pittsburgh.

Will you please verify this agreement by letter. We will let you know when to pick up the shipment. Also do you know of any company that will insure the shipment and, if so, what will be the charge for $7,000 insurance?

Very truly yours,
[A. Avinoff]
