I very much appreciate your sending it in protective packaging. We have hopes of being able to extract DNA some time in the coming months and obtaining sequences of one or more genes from that DNA.

Thank you again for your kindness.

Very best,


Again, thank you for your generosity.

in what I guess must be a younger form than in the earlier images from Tsukuba.

Thank you, again.

Very best,
