Subj: Your request for goods on approval
Dear Mr Klein
I was very pleased to receive your request for goods on approval.
Since we have not previously done business together, you will understand that I must ask you to send us the usual trade references or the name of a bank we can refer to . As soon as these enquiries are satisfactorily settled we shall be happy to send you a representative selection of our products.
I sincerely hope that our first transaction will be the start of a long and pleasant business relationship.
