Dear Mr Merton,

Please find enclosed an order (R1432) from our principals, MacKenzie Bros. Ltd., 1-5 Whale Drive, Dawson, Ontario, Canada.

They have asked us to instruct you that the 60 sets of crockery ordered should be packed in six crates, ten sets per crate, with each piece individually wrapped, and the crates marked clearly with their name, the words 'fragile', 'crockery', and numbered 1-6.

They have agreed to pay by letter of credit, which we discussed on the phone last week, and they would like delivery before the end of this month, which should be easily effected as there are regular sailings from Liverpool.

If the colours they have chosen are not in stock, they will accept an alternative provided the designs are those stipulated on the order.

Please send any further correspondence relating to shipment or payment direct to MacKenzie Bros. and let us have a copy of the commercial invoice when it is made up.

Yours sincerely,

 

L.W. Lowe (Mrs)

Enc. Order R1432
