I'm afraid I have suffered a major disappointment which has forced me to pen the following letter.......
Messers Dunlop & Co.
It being a fine Spring morning I took my 1947 Raleigh out for a ride, however I must perforce report that my enjoyment was cut short. My bicycle is fitted with your Dunlop Roadster tyres which are but a mere forty years old and despite this brief period of service my rear tyre has suffered a split to the sidewall and has become deflated. When these tyres were purchased I received the verbal assurance that, 'They'll see you oot Missus.' However it seems that these tyres have failed to see me out which is a poor state of affairs for a British tyre.
Therefore I wish to advise you that it is my intent to claim a replacement tyre for my bicycle under guarantee.
OMNIPOTENS aeterne Deus, qui nos secundum imaginem Tuam plasmasti, et omnia bona, vera, pulchra, praesertim in divina persona Unigeniti Filii Tui Domini nostri Iesu Christi, quaerere iussisti, praesta quaesumus ut, per intercessionem Sancti Isidori, Episcopi et Doctoris, in peregrinationibus per interrete factis et manus oculosque ad quae Tibi sunt placita intendamus et omnes quos convenimus cum caritate ac patientia accipiamus. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.
