FOODSTUFFS FOR SPAIN.
Many thanks for your letter of the 3rd instant giving quotations in connection with the above matter.
I rather anticipated difficulties in regard to shipment and have been in touch with the Spanish Commercial Attache. It is possible that they will be able to make some arrangements in a British ship which they are likely to charter, and I am promised some information tomorrow.

I must also write you again in regard to the name of the person to whom the goods should be consigned.
