Dear John, How are you? I hope that you enjoyed your vacation, I hope we can arrange some time together to tell me everything about it, especially the places you visited and the photos you took with the new professional camera.
, I would like to capture
opportunity to thank you for allowing me to stay at your apartment
you were on
trip. I am writing you
letter to express my feeling that I am really sorry for dropping the golden bowl, I know it is very special to you but it was really an accident and I did not mean to break it. In a matter of fact, I back late after a long day at work and I found the electricity went off;
, I wrongly hit the table which held it and dropped the bowl,
I tried hard to catch it but unfortunately I missed it, so please accept my apologies.
In addition
to that, please note I am planning to bring you another golden bowl from the same place you bought it before, just inform me with full details and I will give it to you next month. Best Regards,
