Mr. L. Witt,
The Joint Council of the Southampton Trades Council, Labour Party and Co-operative Society,
160, Above Bar,
Dear Mr. Witt,
RAY COX MEMORIAL.
I have your further letter of the 5th April and note your comments.
We have now received an estimate from Messrs. Down Bros. Ltd. of London for a Nitrous Oxide, Oxygen and Ether Apparatus, together with the necessary equipment, cylinders, reserve supplies end a supply of chloroform, totalling £55.13.3.,
less 5 per cent cash discount.
The next thing we have to consider is the cost of carriage, and we have had a preliminary estimate for this of £20. I think, however, that we can make a saving on this by sending the apparatus to Paris and leaving them to attend to its dispatch from there. I am getting in touch with Mr. Schevenels in Paris on this matter, and it is safe to say that we can be ready in a very short time now to execute your order.
I have noted the suggested inscription and this shall be attended to.
