Dear Mr. W erner:—
The sample of limestt
or lime-
containing material which you left at
the laboratory a few deys ago, has
been examined by Mr. Bullis. He re­
ports the sample to contain only 4.38
percent o f lime carbonate.
The re­
mainder o f the material is o f inert na­
ture, most o f it being insoluable in
aous. Th.s analysis indicates the sam­
ple to be o f very low value for neutral­
izing sod acidity.
Yours very sincerely,
H. V. Tartar
Station Chemist.
