I was heartsick when Raj told me about the accident to Sheela’s china doll. I know how long it had been in the family and how much sentimental value it had for you.

If I could replace the doll and the memories it had for your I could certainly do so. Unfortunately, that is impossible, so I have asked Ram to send up the prettiest modern doll in the store. I know Sheela will love her, and I hope that in time the doll will replace the old one in her affections.

Please explain to Sheela how sorry we all are.

Very cordially,



Example No. 3

Dear Mrs. Kapoor,

Satish has told me about our cat’s adventure among your day posy. I don’t know how to tell you how sorry I am, for the pusy were so lovely and I know how proud of them you were.

Nibbles is usually such a good cat that can’t imagine what got into her yesterday. Perhaps it’s the first sign of spring. At any rate, we’ve taken measures to keep her where she can’t possibly run off again.

Unfortunately, there is no making amends for the flowers you working on so carefully. If there is anything that can be repaired. I’d like to have our gardener see what he can do. He comes on Fridays. So if you’ll let me know what time is convenient, I will arrange to have him see you.

In the meantime , please accept a few of my begonias as a compensation. They-are potted and just ready for transplanting.

Sincerely yours,



Example No. 4

Dear Mrs. Malhotra,

I was fortunately at home yesterday when our dogs scratched sonny. I cleaned the scratch immediately and bandaged it, so there should be no cause for worry.

The boys were wrestling in the backyard when Papy decided to get in on the fun. I guess he didn’t realize his nails were so sharp, for he is always very gentle with children.

Papy has been properly punished, and I’m sure he won’t scratch again the boys have agreed to keep him as club mascot with the promise that any wresting in the future will be out of Papy’s right.

Very sincerely,
