Mr Littleton has handed us your letter of the 3rd wish with reference to your “Te Deum”.
As the cable to which you refer in your letter has not yet reached us, we assume that you are not able to offer us the work. But in any case we regret that we could not accept your terms viz:- L150.
Novello & Ewer
