My dear Mr. Hayes:

Thank you for your letter of the 22nd, which was forwarded to me in Nantucket.

I had written you in April to find out whether you could make the radio-carbon test on some ancient Egyptian objects known to come from a given dynasty.

It is very good of you to offer me such objects, but unfortunately they would be of no use to me. I have no facilities for making such a test, and I could easily obtain such objects from Dows Dunham at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.

Under the circumstances you need make no arrangements to have such objects sent to me in the fall. Thanking you for your courtesy and with kindest regards,

  Yours faithfully,
  Robert H. Pfeiffer
