1.  Include full details of quantities, prices, colors, sizes etc.
2.  Quote catalogue number if any.
3.  State the requirements as to delivery – date, place, mode of transport etc.
4.  Confirm the terms of payment agreed in preliminary negotiation.
5.  Refer to the enclosure of cheque, pay order or draft or samples or colour of material if any.
