A note arrives from Horneteer William Marler – greatly appreciated it is too. He writes in response to our post about an historic garment stolen from our premises here in Kensington…
Dear Mr Hornets and the team,
I hope I can speak for every single one of your loyal followers in expressing to you our great sympathy. This must be so very upsetting for you. I only hope that the blighter – whoever it is – will be so overcome with remorse that this wonderful garment will be returned to you unharmed.
I spent such a lovely morning today in the beautiful countryside of the Welsh border looking out over “the coloured counties” but this depressing news just received has cast a shadow over my afternoon.
I hope that “The Barfly” may be able to offer a restorative – we all need one after reading this news.
With kind best wishes to you all and looking forward to seeing you soon
Mr Marler, thank you for your kind words. And The Barfly has been duly contacted (by which we mean we’ve left messages at several of his “haunts”, he could be anywhere, frankly) and we’re sure he’ll swing by soon with a cooling restorative for us all.
To all other Horneteers, a reminder of our appeal… Have you seen this jacket… Stolen from our shop last week.
