Included is a personal letter from the

E.C. Powder Company Limited

To an E.C. Palmer Esq. working up a new load post Nitro reproof. This letternwas posted October 1st 1913from W.W. Borland, Managing Director ofnthe E. C. Powder Company of Dartford, Kent. Interesting to note that the powder factory was located "out of town" on Green street- most probably by urgent request from the local gentry.
