1. Enclosing new Price List
SIR or MADAM,
We beg to call your attention to the enclosed revised Price List. We are happy to announce that, owing to careful buying on a large scale, we have been able to offer a further reduction in many lines, and we are convinced that no more favourable terms are obtainable. We especially direct your attention to Section V (china and glassware), in which we are able to offer many striking novelties at remarkably low prices.
We hope you will shortly pay us a visit, or, if this is not possible, will avail yourself of our “Shopping by Post” system, full details of which will be found in the enclosed Price List.
Your orders shall always receive our best attention.
MORGAN & WHITE.

4. Announcing Sale
We beg to advise you that our Spring Sale will open on March I5th, and enclose catalogue showing a few of the great bargains that will be offered.
Prices have been reduced in some cases by over 50%, and in all departments exceptional opportunities are offered of obtaining high-class goods at prices far below cost. These are all goods bought for our general stock, and therefore are in every way up to the high standard of quality on which our reputation is based.
We hope you will be able to pay us a visit and make your own selections. If you are unable to do so, however, we shall be happy to reserve for you any goods ordered from the enclosed catalogue, to be dispatched on March 15th. Orders by post cannot be received after that date.
As all prices have been so greatly reduced, we can only sell these goods on a cash basis, and remittance in full must accompany orders. We pay carriage on all orders over L in value.
Assuring you always of our best attention, and awaiting your commands,
We are, Madam,
WATSON & PEEL.
5. Offering Special Goods
We have received advices of a consignment of dolls from our agents in Stuttgart. These are very fine models, superior to anything on the market at present, and, as we have secured the entire consignment at exceptional prices, we are able to offer them to our customers at a very attractive figure.
We enclose list, giving sizes and prices. If you would like to avail yourself of this offer, please let us hear from you by return, as our supply is limited and the models cannot be repeated this year.
The consignment is now at the docks, so that immediate delivery can be made.
