     A Washington, Pennsylvania dispatch says:  After months of search, 
Professor Jonathan Emery of William and Mary college, has discovered the 
aerolite which fell in Washington county, September fourteenth 1883.  
Professor Emery says it is the largest aerolite on record, and weighs fully 
two hundred tons.  Its composition is chromium, nickel, aluminum, copper, 
magnesium and tin.


Mark note:  This is the article, that spawned the "Aerolite Liar" article 
referred to a few times on the list.


Clear Skies,
