D S HOSKINS
Sir: Your example of a Swede grappling with a pie being a trifle tart (letter, 4 June) reminded us of a Spanish colleague.
When we first started our business, he was anxious to impress us as a possible partner; so sent us a fax which said: "Please be assured of our commitment to your product: we would like you to know that we are working hardly every day."
We didn't take him at his word.
