Dear Mr. Ryder,

Due to an error in our inventory control software system, we have short-shipped your last order (your P.O. 6124 dated Oct. 3rd) by six Super-B's (our product code 525C). However, I am assured by our Shipping Department that the missing items are on hand and will be delivered to you by next Tuesday. Consequently, we have not adjusted our invoice.

Please accept our apology for this inconvenience.

Yours sincerely,

William Strongarm,
New England Sales Manager
