Placing an order: covering letter

This letter follows on from the correspondence at 3.3.4 and 4.3.5. F. Lynch & Co. have decided to place an order with Satex S.p.A. and are sending a covering letter with the form.



1 In the letter at 3.3.4 Lynch & Co. said they were likely to order over 500 sweaters, but their actual order is only for 150. What might be the reason for this?

2 How will Lynch & Co. pay?
