    revising of a few sentences

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to revise the following sentences?

    I must say that we aren’t quite satisfied with our present sales. We used to get regular large orders from a number of the largest hotels and restaurants in Varna but lately we have been doing less businesss with them.

    I wouldn’t say that there is a big decrease in the volume of our buseness, but many hotels are inclined to use, instead of caviar, cheaper stuffs like lobsters or oysters, for instance. I hope you are not going to raise your prises this year.

    We could ship the goods from Varna within three weeks of receipt of your order.

    What time of the shipping do you need?

    This offer is subject to written or cabled confirmation on receipt of order.

    All deliveries are subject to strikes. Lockouts, accident and other unforeseen contingencies.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    What time of the shipping do you need (
    is convenient to you)?

    confirmation of the order by mail or cable).

    delay due to strikes. Lockouts, accident and other unforeseen contingencies.

    Thank you for your efforts.
