Mr. J. Thompson,
The Co-operative Wholesale Society, Limited,

Dear Mr. Thompson,
INSURANCE OF GOODS ON s.s. BACKWORTH.
I have your letter of the 3rd instant in regard to the above matter and regret that owing to the delayed sailing of the vessel the insurance charges were so greatly increased.
Referring to your enquiry as to whether we would be prepared to meet you in any way, I may say that we have greatly appreciated the assistance which we have received in sending consignments to Spain and I think some arrangement can be made in the direction which you suggest.
I am wondering if you are likely to be in London during the course of next week. If so, I shall be glad if you would let me know in order that a mutually convenient time might be fixed when we could talk over the matter.
