Dear Sir,

Thank you for your letter received in this Department 1st April, concerning the above.

Your letter has been passed to our main dealers George Hartwell Ltd. 35-41 Oldhamhurst Road, Bournemouth, Hampshire who specialise in tuning the Hillman Imp, and you doubtless be hearing from them within the next few days with the information you require.

  Yours faithfully,

(signed by M.J. Buthin)
