Llanduff 3rd Oct 1887

Dear Sir

Above five years ago, I was in the Museum at Zürich and was much interested in the various objects which had been found in the lake there - among the remains of Lake dwellings. I was anxious to obtain some specimens and the Curator gave me the addresss of a man he knew had been collecting them. From him I obtained the Nephrite Celt which I now send you, and beg the favor that you will add it to your Museum.

The jade gives it an interest which you will appreciate.

I have given you the history so far as I acquainted with it of the Celt, because I am aware that several articles of this kind have been fabricated, but I hope you will agree with me that this is genuine

I am
dear Sir
yours faithfully
C. Waldron
