A Letter From
Mr. Cairns

On what had been a very usual Tuesday afternoon at notonthehighstreet.com HQ, having consumed copious amounts of tea and more sweets than you could shake a stick at, we received a most extraordinary letter from a one Mr. Cairns.

As an online marketplace, we are more apt to dealing with e-mails and other forms of digital communications, than a letter. As you might expect, it put us on the spot somewhat. Much to our surprise, the envelope also contained 1500 Hellbank Notes, one Miracle Telling Fish and seven Active Kids Vouchers. As it turns out, it was much more than a letter; it was an order for a Cast Iron Sundial.

We thought it only right, in this instance, to respond in full to Mr. Cairns, after his kind and well thought out letter.

We thank Mr. Cairns for the merriment his letter caused in the office, and assure him his sundial will be with him soon.
