Dear Mr. Taylor:

This letter will confirm our telephone conversation regarding the movement of files and furniture from Towers West to the fifth floor of Cincinnati Commerce Tower in United Fuller Plaza on March 2.

As we discussed, this is a large move because of the Town Davids units involved. We will also be moving file cabinets, chairs, and many boxes. The flat-map file, scout card files, standing map cases, and plotter on the sixth floor will all need special attention. Your movers will need two-wheel dollies and other special equipment.

Please load all furniture at the Bammel Street entrance to the building. The ramp on Berryton Street will be the unloading site. We will furnish elevator operators in both the Towers West and the Cincinnati Commerce Tower buildings. On Saturday, when the boxes are to be moved, please schedule all equipment and personnel as to avoid any delay in our normal Monday-to-Friday office work schedule. We have agreed all movement of furniture and boxes will be complete by 5:00 p.m. on Saturday.

Your personnel must pick up identification badges and log in with our security desk upon arrival at the Towers West location. They must turn in the badges at the end of each shift. Please call our security people at 123-4567 prior to 5:00 p.m. on February 28 to give them the names of your people working each shift.

If we have misunderstood any of your services with regard to this move, please let me know immediately by calling 456-3355. We look forward to a smooth move under your effective guidance.

Sincerely,

Myron,

During our recent conversation with Benton, Inc.’s customer, Ardo Chemical, I think I may have created some confusion concerning whether you should call on them in the future. Let me restate my position:

There is no reason for you or any of your representatives to venture into Benton’s territory. As we’ve discussed on several occasions, territory boundaries are sacred. On occasion, of course, two shop managers may agree that, for a specific situation, crossing boundaries is acceptable. Both shops must agree fully in such a situation, and they should limit such contact to only one transaction.

Benton has a plan to straighten out their problem with Ardo Chemical, and we want to give them the right to do just that. I’m sure you would want the same consideration were the situation reversed.

If, however, you do not agree with my position and feel the situation warrants further review, you may appeal to have a certain territory transferred to your shop. You may direct any such proposal to Marvin Vindler in the Shreveport office.

Keep up the good work you’re doing for us.

Sincerely,
