The objects from the Amazon and Indonesia sent by you on August 1st ., have safely and in good order. We shall be very pleased to accept them as a gift from yourself and your sister to the Museum. They are an interesting series, particularly the stone Axe from the Amazon and the clay beater from Dory and bird-shaped float.
The keeper whishes me to express his sincere thanks to you for the gift. An official acknowledgement will be sent you after the next trustees meeting, in October. I quite agree that the stone sculpture rom modjo-pahit would be more in place here than in Charterhouse school museum.
Yours faithfully | Assistant keeper1
