Subject: Delay in delivery

Sent: August 9, 08:50 a.m.

Dear Mr. JC Chang,

We are writing about our order that we placed to you on June 10. In your June 11 reply, you confirmed delivery on August 2, but one week has past since then and we have not received the shipment. We would like to make it clear that you have a contract with us for on-schedule delivery. If we do not receive the consignment in time for our scheduled freight to our customers, we will take legal action for any financial loss because of your delay in delivery.

Sincerely, David Laden
