Dear Mrs Fraser:
Thank-you for your recent letter. I am aware we have been a bit long in responding but hope you appreciate that we had approximately $17 million in flower sales during the week you mention so these things do take time to track down.
After checking our records once again, I have confirmed that yes we did indeed deliver 972 floral centrepieces with rampant Muskoka "fish" figurines, valued at $219 ea. on June 24 of last year. However our records do show that delivery was made to the Algonquin Ballroom in the Beaverlodge Hotel - not the Beaver Room at the Algonquin Lodge, as your most recent letter seemed to indicate.
I would be happy to provide any such documentation as you may require to substantiate any actual billings or deliveries as required.
Unfortunately, as we were only sub-contracted to provide these items, we have no idea who actually placed the order. I would refer you to our contact, Mr. Peter Smiley, of Fake Event Management, however you seem to feel this contact is no longer valid.
We would be unable to say if there was a dinner or meeting held in the room to which the flowers were delivered, however I could refer you to our meeting coordinator, a Mr, Jahim Raffer.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can be of further assistance.
