Dear Annie, I hope you are doing great and enjoying your life. It’s been almost a month since we met because of the final year exams. I believe you will pass with distinctions in all majors. First of all, let me thank you for allowing me to use your electronic dictionary, which I borrowed from you for the exam. But, I’ve got some bad news for you about the device you temporarily gave me. I must apologize to you because it has been damaged accidentally because of my carelessness. Here’s what happened actually. After using it for a few days, I noticed that it was not working properly as I found out the batteries were getting weak. I wanted to replace the old batteries with the new ones, and that’s when the machine got slipped out of my hand and fell on the concrete floor. Luckily, it was still running but its display had received a few cracks on it. I am so sorry for the damage and I know you got
electronic dictionary as a present from your dad. I will definitely buy you a new one with the same brand. So, just give me a few days as I have checked on its website and ordered for delivery to you. I wish you will not be upset reading the news. See you very soon. With love, Ella
