    Almost.

    On enlarging the document in the link, it lists the publishers as "Langtree & O'Sullivan" - which also corresponds to the text on the letter in the OP.

    PS "Germolino"? Keep taking the cream.

    No. I've got used to having to read the small print and (cheap, but 3x magnification) reading glasses do help.
