The Companies Send Samples

The representatives of both the companies met with Mr Abrahams on Saturday 24th June, they brought along samples of tins for the Committee to look at. Later in the afternoon a telegram from Cadbury arrived, reminding him of the short time there was to place an order with them.

At the same time Rowntree wrote a letter to him, which he duly received on the 26th June, after the visit of their representative, a Mr Stabler, suggesting that there was still some room for exploration as to the design of the tin.

The Sub-Committee had their meeting on the 27th June to look at the tins supplied by the companies. There is no written record of what happened at the meeting, but on the 28th June following this and the visit by Mr Stabler, Rowntree's representative, Mr Abrahams wrote to Rowntree informing them that they were to be appointed as suppliers of the commemorative tins of chocolate.
