My Dear Quentin,

Re: Your outstanding fee notes

I refer to the letter from your Head Clerk, enquiring as to when you might expect your outstanding fee notes to be paid. I can assure you that they are receiving attention, and that rumours that we have been using them as fuel to heat our offices are entirely without foundation.

Yours etc.,

Edgar Venal
