Dear Mr. Jones:
We thank you for your L/C for the captioned goods. We are sorry that owing to some delay on the part of our suppliers at the point of origin, we are not able to get the goods ready before the end of this month. As a result, we sent you a cable yesterday reading: L/C1415 PLSCABLE EXTENSION SHIPMENT VALIDITY 15/31 MAY RESPECTIVELY LETFOLLOWS It is expected that the consignment will be ready for shipment in the early part of May and we are arranging to ship it on s/s Fanyang sailing from Dalian on or about 10th May. We are looking forward to receiving your cable extension of the above L/C thus enabling us to effect shipment of the goods in question. We thank you for your cooperation. Sincerely..
