In reply to your advertisement in Echo, Wed night, we would like to offer you an audition for the position of drummer in the group.
You will, however, need to be free soon for a trip to Hamburg (expenses paid ₤ 18 per week (approx.) for 2 months.)
If interested , ring Jacaranda Club, Slater St. [ROYAL 6544] and ask for either a member of the ‘BEATLES’ Alan Williams, or else leave a message, stating when you will be available.
