Dear Sir,I am writing with regard to your latest order, namely French hens (3).Be advised that the above items are currently out of stock. This is due to industrial action by French farmers and lorry drivers (they always seem to strike over Christmas, between you and me I think they just want to extend their holidays a bit!) and their blockade of the ports.French hens are vastly overrated: they are generally on the scrawny side and smell of garlic. Have you considered buying British? Sussex and Orpington are quite nice, you know.If we can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.Yours faithfully,Miss L. Toe.
