Geoff Maynard,
Randall's Farm,
Nether Somerby,

Dear Sir,
Thank you for your letter of the 7th inst. I am sorry that you are finding it inconvenient to change over to the Metzinger scale. Let me assure you that many of our suppliers are already finding the new scale is the most realistic method of grading plums and greengages. With the coming of metrication, [the phone starts to ring] I feel confident that [the phone is still ringing] the bloody phone will ring all day...
