One of your friends is coming back from abroad. But you are held up due to some engagements and are unable to go and receive him at the airport. Write him a letter. In your letter,  apologize for not being able to come  tell him the reason  suggest him an alternative and talk about the plan.

Dear Steve, How have you been lately ? Hope
letter finds you good in health. Since the day of your mail, I have been so excited to meet you after so long. You can not even imagine how much I have missed you. To continue, the job and its responsibilities are holding me to meet you, the same day of your arrival some of our important clients are going to come for a meeting. In spite of wanting I could not be there to pick you up. But there is a surprise for you,
of me one of our best friends is going to pick you up from the airport and from there we will escort you to my house. I will meet you on the same evening. Do not want me to tell you his name. From the next day, as per plan we will go on some fun trips and will enjoy our stay together. I hope you will understand my position. And hope to see you soon. Yours loving, Jen Kale
