Connors daughter, Hetti. Eileen wrote a note saying: Monday 11.05 am. Please keep the car for me.
Here is my cheque for $26,000Eileen. Hetti left the note on Connors desk in his study.

correctly it arrived only on Friday.
Question 2 (12 marks)
Dan took his dinner suit and his wifes silk dress to the Toff Dry Cleaners, a firm his family used
whenever they had dry cleaning to be done.
He was handed a docket and as usual he placed it in his wallet without reading it.
When Dan called to collect the clothing he was told that his dinner suit was missing and his wifes silk
dress was badly stained. No explanation was given about the stained dress. However, one of the
assistants recalled handing the dinner suit to a customer who had apparently lost his docket but was
able to identify the dinner suit when allowed to sort through the rack of dry cleaned clothing
awaiting collection by customers.
Dan demanded compensation but the owner of Toff Dry Cleaners referred Dan to a clause on the
docket which read: We will not be liable for any loss or damage to clothing left for cleaning. The
owner also pointed to a sign at the back of the shop which had been displayed there for some time.
The sign said: We take all care in the dry cleaning of our customers clothing but we regret we
cannot take any responsibility for loss or damage however caused.
Dan protested that he had never read the sign or the docket.

assistant had said: That excludes liability for damage to buttons and zippers
(2 marks)

silk dress. He now tells you that because of what has happened his wife has suffered

because of the loss and damage.
