We wish to apologise for the paper miscalculation in our earlier letter, which has since been corrected by Mr. Parley at our London Office.


In view of the quality of the paper we shall be greatly obliged if you can arrange to have this despatched at once, as we should like to have plenty of time to put it through our maturing plant and take every precaution before printing.


We trust you will be able to arrange this without any inconvenience to yourselves.


Yours faithfully, | PERCY LUND, HUMPHRIES & CO.LTD., | E H [signature]
