I am eagerly looking forward to your visit to our city. After all these years of writing to each other, I can not wait to see you. However, I regret to inform you that I will not be able to meet you at the airport on time.
The reason is that your flight will arrive early in the morning, and the earliest I can reach the airport will be about an hour after you land. Will you please wait for me in the arrival lounge? You can have breakfast while you wait.
By the way, as we have never met I must tell you home to identify me: I am of 165cm tall and have a long hair. In addition, I will wear a white skirt and carry a China Daily at hand.
Hope we can meet soon.
Dear Sir or Madam,
I’m writing this letter to apologize to you. I’m so sorry that we made a mistake about the shipment of vacuum cleaners.
Those vacuum cleaners we sent to you were meant to be sent to European countries, but as the old worker was retired, the new one wasn’t so experienced. Besides, the model number and the price of goods in March and July are so similar that the worker mistaken them.
I am awfully sorry for this and we promise you a replacement shipment. We will also give a 10% discount to compensate.
I do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and I will try my best to avoid the same accident happening again.
Thank you for your invitation to dinner at your home tomorrow evening. Unfortunately, it is much to my regret that I cannot join you and your family, because I will be fully occupied then for an important exam coming the day after tomorrow. I feel terribly sorry for missing the chance of such a happy get-together, and I hope that all of you enjoy a good time. Is it possible for you and me to have a private meeting afterward? If so, please don't hesitate to drop me a line about your preferable date. I do long for a pleasant chat with you.
Please allow me to say sorry again.
