We have to acknowledge the receipt of your letter regarding the encroachment of the above over the Municipal road by 6 feet, thereby forming an infraction to the building rules. In reply, we beg to state that owing to the ignorance on our part of the building rules, we erected the sign as an imitation to the one erected by our neighbours. Since the structure does not conform to the regulations, it should surely be demolished, but we are emboldened to request that you will give a kindly consideration to difficulties of a business man and allow the structure to remain. We shall be only too ready to receive further instructions form you if you think that its removal is absolutely necessary.
