Description
This item is a letter sent from Thomas McCosh, a Paris merchant, to George Foster and Sons dated February 16, 1903. After enclosing an order for B.B. Gunn in his letter, Mr. McCosh described his encounter in providing him a sample of Japanese tea. While it seems that Mr. Gunn was shown a product from another company, Mr. McCosh hopes that George Foster can show them a difference by offering a good price. Noting that heavy paper bags were shipped from Southampton, he further adds that Mr. Aval had become sick for the last week. He concludes by saying he will soon go to Wingham, Brussels, Jamestown, Bluevale and then Ripley.

George Foster and Sons was a Wholesale Grocer located at 143 Colborne Street on the historic South Side of Brantford.
