The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 76

11, London Street, Fenchurch Street, B.C., 1st April, 1898

11, London Street, Fenchurch Street, B.C.,

Dear Sir,—

In reply to your favour of the 29th ultimo, we have examined the sample of New Zealand hemp, and consider it of excellent quality. Kindly let us know the price, and who would be the best people to procure it from.

With reference to your inquiry, we would suggest that the bales should weigh 2½ cwt. each, the measurement of which is about 2 ft. 5 in. by 2ft. 3 in. by 2 ft., and put up in hanks similar to the one sent us.

Our trade with New Zealand is not at present a large one, so if you could give us any information as to the names of some of the leading rope-buyers we should be much obliged.

We are, &c., Frost Brothers (Limited),

John Holmes

, Esq.
