Dear David, I am just writing to say how much I enjoyed your party last weekend. I didn’t see you when I left, which is why I’m writing to say thank you now. There was a really good atmosphere and we all had a wonderful time. I imagine you spent ages getting everything ready. The food was great and the cocktails were fantastic. It was a really good idea to have the music and the dancing in the backyard, too. Anyway, thanks again. It was an evening I’ll never forget. Love, Helen Dear David, I’m writing to say sorry for last weekend. I feel very bad about it and I hope you’ll forgive me. I hate to think what other people think of me. I know it wasn’t a good idea to dance on the table, but I was having such a good time. I’m afraid I didn’t realize that it wasn’t strong enough for my weight. Anyway, please accept my apologies for being so stupid. It won’t happen again! I’ve enclosed a check and I hope that it’s enough to pay for the damage. Best wishes (with a red face), Benita
