Sir,
 
I regret to inform you through negligence of your driver of cab 3186, my cart has one of the side pannells (sic) broke in.  The cost of repairing the same by new Pannell Painting, Varnishing etc is as I have ascertained of My Wheelwright to be 20/-.
 
I shall not proceed to order the same to be done for 2 days should you wish to wait on me for inspection of the damage and payment of the same to prevent further trouble and expense.
 
 
NB The above damage was done in the Euston Rd last evening
