Referring to our order of the (date…) for (items….), we shall be glad to know when we may expect delivery, as the goods are most urgently wanted. These kinds of goods were promised within a week, and we are already put to considerable inconvenience with the long delay. Please wire us earlier whether you can delivery at the end of this month.
Or else, we shall have to be able to cancel the order, as we cannot wait any lengthier, and must obtain items elsewhere. This is simply not the first time we have had to complain of delay of deliveries of goods ordered, in addition to, as in this case the goods were wanted as soon as possible, we particularly stipulated intended for prompt delivery when giving the order for a representative, who promised to find out that it was dealt with immediately.
We need to really insist upon greater promptitude in regard to deliveries. Otherwise we will likely be compelled to place our orders with others who is going to and will give delivery with the stipulated time.
