The Hogarth Press,
We thank you for your letter of the 14th and wish to express our grateful thanks for the opportunity of seeing a specimen of the paper you propose supplying, before it is actually despatched. With regard to this paper specimen, we would point out that it is not really suitable paper for our Replika Process, but in view of existing conditions we are willing to accept, but we must anticipate a little more spoilage than usual. However, a lot depends on the actual condition and if the consignment arrives here in a flat state, it will minimise our difficulties. We take it that you will be supplying to us 12 3/4 reams, packed in 516's in 30/40 size.
Yours faithfully, | PERCY LUND, HUMPHRIES & CO., LTD. | EH [signature]
