例文:


(A) Dear sirs,


Silicon Steel Sheets


We learn from your letter of 10th October that our price for the subject article is found to be on the high side.


Much as we would like to cooperate with you in expanding sales, we are regretful that we just connot see our way clear to entertain your counter-offer, as the price we quoted is quite realistic. As a matter of fact, we have received a lot of orders from various sources at our level.


If you see any chance to do better, please let us know. On account of a limited supply available at present, we would ask you to act quickly.


In the meantime, please keep us posted of development at your end. We assure you that any further enquires from you will receive our prompt attention.


Yours faithfully,


(B) Declining an Order


Dear sirs,


Silicon Steel Sheets


We thank you for your Order No.115 received this morning for the above goods, but regret that owing to shortage of stocks, we are unable to accept the same, nor can our manufacturers undertake to entertain your order for future delivery on account of the uncertainty of raw materials.


We will, however, revert to this matter and contact you by cable, once the supply position improves.


Meanwhile, please feel free to send us your specific enquiries for any other metal sheets and you can rely on our best attention at all times.


Yours faithfully,
