E-C: Translate the following letter of rejecting counter-offer from English into Chinese.
Your letter of March 19 has been duly received with thanks. We are very glad to know you increase the quantity from 800 to 1,200 dozen. But we regret our inability to accept your proposal of reducing by 5% the price of our quotation sheet for the captioned goods.
As we know, the market is firm with an upward tendency at present. We are still offering you the same price as those old customers. We don’t deny that the similar shirts are being sold in your local department stores at the price much lower than ours as you mentioned. But please note that our products are much better in quality than other products of this type. Therefore, we hope you will accept our previous quotation and place an order soon. We can guarantee prompt shipment before the selling season is coming.
Your early reply will be highly appreciated.
