Dear Sir,

In reply to your favor, we can supply you with fireworks from $2&50/100 upwards. We enclose illustrated catalogue of small displays up to $100.00. To supply a man to fire these we should have to charge his expenses, as every piece has firing instructions printed on it and can easily be displayed by anyone. If you will kindly name the amount you desire to expend, we will at once let you have programme of the best we can do for the money, including the attendance of an expert to arrange everything.

Yours truly,
James Pain & Sons
