I'm very sorry that I can't go on a trip to Beijing with you next weekend, which I have promised you. I'm writing to tell you the reason for it.(topic)
Just now, my cousin, Li Ming, who went abroad for further education last year, informed me that he would return the next Saturday morning. He asked me to pick him up at the airport with his parents. As you know, we haven't seen each other for about a year, so I'll have to help him in the first place.
I really hope that you can accept my apologies and understand me. I would appreciate it if you allow me to fix another time to show you around some places of interest in Beijing.
Wish you have a good time this weekend!
Dear Mr. Smith,
I am indeed very sorry that I missed the examination on International Business English Writing you gave last Friday. I feel awful about it and want you to know what happened that day. I suddenly fell sick early that morning and my parents had to send me to the hospital. Please find enclosed a copy of the medical bill.
I sincerely hope you can understand my situation and accept my apology. I would appreciate your allowing me to take a make-up examination. I will come to your office during your office hour on Monday to discuss this possibility with you. Once again, I apologize for any inconvenience caused.
Dear Mr. Wang，
I am much grateful to be employed by you two months ago as an editor for your magazine Design & Fashions. I appreciate the opportunity of having worked here with you and other colleagues.
The experiences will be unforgettable throughout my life.However, as a young man whose primary interest is in computer science rather than fashion designing, I find my present job doesn’t fall in with my previous training and strength.
I therefore decide to quit this job for something else that may conform to my former preparation.Please accept my sincere apologies for any inconvenience my leaving may cause.
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.
kindly excuse me for my not being able to see you off at the airport this saturday as i have promised.
how i wish i could have the chance to share with you my personal feelings and suggestions before you are away! i hereby send you a gift to wish you good luck. please forgive me.
How is everything going with you?
I’m terribly sorry that I’m not able to go to your birthday party this Saturday afternoon. I’m in Beijing now because my mother is seriously ill and will have an operation here. She is in bad need of my care these days, so I’m staying here to take care of her in the hospital.
I wish you a happy birthday and hope everything will go well with the party. By the way, I have sent you the latest CD of Zhang Jie. I hope you’ll like this birthday present.
I’m looking forward to seeing you soon.
It’s a long time since we met last time and I miss you very much. hanks for your invitation. However, I regret to tell you that I can’t travel o America this winter holiday for some unavoidable reasons.
First of all, it’s the coming of the Spring Festival that makes me refer to stay at home rather than take a travel to America. As far as
we Chinese are concerned, the Spring Festival is a family time treasured
by us all. What’s more, the College Entrance Examination is coming. So
significant is it to me that I will attend some tutorial classes during this
winter holiday for some of my weak divisions. Taking all the above
factors into consideration, I have to say sorry again
Anyway, shall I make it after the Exam? I will appreciate it if you
can be my guide at the time. Yours
Dear My Boss：
I am very sorry for missing the presentation which was scheduled on May 4 20xx, regarding the environment change review in our company. My friend was very ill and he was hospitalized since last 3 weeks. I had to take care of him and that's why I was not able to make it for the scheduled appointment.
He came to Shenyang for a trip and I was his only former classmate here and no one else could help him and take him to the hospital. Now He is fine and I think he is able to find his way home by himself.
I am requesting you to arrange my presentation as soon as possible. I want to thank you for your understanding and patience. I am looking forward to the next presentation when I won’t miss that no matter what.
