Confirmation of cabled quotation
6th July 2010
We were very pleased to receive your enquiry of 2nd July and now confirm our cabled offer of this morning, as follows:
“Two hundred and fifty—six pounds per thirty—six metre piece f.o.b. Manchester”.
We must stress that this offer is firm for three days only because of the heavy demand for the limited supplies of this velvet in stock.
The material is of the very finest quality and we can assure you that so far as quality goes you have nothing at all to fear from the similar materials of other manufact urers either in this country or abroad. We feel sure you will realize that our quoted price is very reasonable, but we are anxious to do what we can to help you to establish your new business and are prepared to allow you a special first—order discount of 3% if payment of the account is made within one month.
If you decide to accept our offer, kindly cable your acceptance.
