TitleCopy letter from an unknown correspondent, to Messrs Stone & Company
Date14 March 1894
DescriptionThey note that in the six boxes sent by Messrs Stone & Company, there is one blue and five green, and that the green ones will not do as they do not match their set. Asks that they send five blue ones and they will return the green. Also remarks that it is a pity that their boxes vary so much in colour, even among the blue ones, and further that they have no agent in London who keeps a stock of boxes. Furthermore, their box labels do not have their address, which means that if one forgets difficulties are caused.
