Dear Mr Adair,

We have been insuring individual shipments of our chinaware with you for some time now, and as you have probably noticed we have established a number of customers in North and South America.

As we will be making regular shipments, we wondered if you could arrange open cover for £60,000 against all risks to insure consignments to North and South American Eastern seaboard ports.

We look forward to hearing from you soon,

Yours sincerely,

E.F. Goodman
