Abstract

"I am in receipt of your letter of the 6th instant, enclosing invoices in triplicate, for case 270 and in which you state that the same was forwarded by the S.S. GERMANIA. I presume you intended to say "S.S. GERMANIC." As these matters of shipment have all received the attention of my agent, Mr. W.J. Hammer, who himself sailed on the steamer "Germanic" the day before yesterday, and as I am unfamiliar with the details of your arrangements for shipments of material to the Paris Exposition, might I ask you to kindly explain to me what constitutes the error in connection with the shipment of case 270. This will enable me to communicate intelligently with Mr. Hammer upon his arrival on the other side, and to take such steps as are necessary to have the mistake remedied." Yours truly, [signed] TAE
