Dear Sirs: We are sorry to learn from your letter of May 6 that 50 out of the 3,000 cartons of Herbs supplied to your Order No. AD-2 were found deteriorated on arrival at the port of destination. We have been exporting Herbs for many years. All our Herbs are subject to strict inspection before export and enjoy a good reputation on international markets. But for any possible deterioration for which we are found liable, we shall always be ready to compensate. In this particular case, however, we have to point out that the goods were in good condition when shipped, which was clearly stated in the clean Bill of Lading. We, therefore, suggest that you file a claim against the shipping company for compensation.
Should you wish to place an order for a new batch of 50 cartons to make up for your deteriorated goods, please let us know and we will be willing to do so. Yours faithfully
