We received your Special Delivery Letter of October 18th in this office the morning. This Letter is being forwarded to the salesman handling your account.
We are very sorry that we are unable to fill an order for you direct from this office, but due to curtailment of soap, all of our salesmen are working on allotments which they control themselves. This is necessary to insure an equal distribution of all of our soap throughout the territories that the salesmen cover.
We are asking the salesman to call on you to see if an order can be placed.
Yours very truly,
John N. Perry, Jr.
