Claims Committee of the City Council, Ft. Worth, Texas.
We beg to hand you under this cover statement for $10.47 this being the expense incurred by us in a shipment ot Mr. John B. Hawley, City Eng., an according to instructions given us by Mr. M. Dean, and authorized agent. Mr Dean instructed us emphatically to make shipment with 3/L attached, said although we instructed him that we referred to ship open account to the city of Ft. Worth. However, he informed us that these were instructions that he had received and we therefore shipped accordingly. Upon delivery of shipment Mr. Cawley immediately refused to accept same, stating that we had insulted the city's standing, we expressed our desire to release shipment at once and charge same to the City of Ft. Worth, to this, however, Mr. Hawley did not accede. Our expense is for freight and a ladder which Mr. Dean secured on the strength of this order, we therefore hold the city of Ft. Worth liable for damages in this instance on the basis that we have complied with the instructions given us by your authorized agent Mr. Dean. We trust that the city will reimburse us for this loss.
Thanking you for your favor, we are,
Yours very respectfully,
THE ART WALL PAPER MILLS. Adolph [Frin?] MGR.
