I would like to ask the following question to this list, also asked by
myself <a href="
http://mathoverflow.net/questions/23440/reference-request-for-relative-bordism-coinciding-with-homology-in-low-dimensions">on
MathOverflow</a>.

It's a standard fact that, for finite CW complexes, the relative
(oriented) bordism group  $\Omega_n^O(X,A)$ is isomorphic to $[H_\ast(X,A;
\Omega^O_*(pt.))]_n$, which is isomorphic to $H_n(X,A)$ for $n<4$. One can
prove this using the Atiyah-Hirzebruch spectral sequence, and it can be
deduced from results of Thom, but all papers I've seen seem to just
state this isomorphism as a fact without citation. I really want to find the
original reference for the above isomorphism, but have wasted much time and
found nothing.

What is the original reference for the above proof (and the fact itself)
that relative bordism and relative homology coincide in low dimensions?
