  Dear Mr Smith,
  I have learned that you have decided to select Dealer Dan for your catalogue, instead of Big Boss. I understand that your reasons for rejecting “Big Boss” are as follows: 1. That the unit cost will be 30% higher than the rival product. 2. That the launch date of Big Boss will be three weeks later. 3. That J K Toys, the manufacturer, will mount an extensive adrertising campaign to coincide with the launch date of the product and the mailing date of your catalogue. I would like you to reconsider your decision in the light of the following:
  1. Bibury Systems have rescheduled the launch date of Big Boss to January 15th – one week before the planned launch of Dealer Dan. 2. Because of the market profile of your catalogue, we have decided to offer you an extra 2.5% commission on sales through the catalogue in exchange for exclusivity. 3. In addition, Bibury Systems are prepared to offer your customers a discount of 15% on the recommended retail price. I am sure that this new information will encourage you to reconsider your decision and indlude “Big Boss” in your Spring Edition. I look forward to receiving your thoughts on this matter.
  Yours sincerely,
  Clive Harris
  MD Bibury Systems

  Dear Clive
  
  It was good to see you again yesterday and many thanks for the lift.
  I would just like to say again that it is very important to keep our discussion confidential. However, please do call on me again if you need to.
  I wish you every success with Big Boss.
  
  Yours
  Peter Day

  Key:
  Dear Mom and Dad,
   Your Christmas gift check was much appreciated, though somehow I feel that
  as a parent myself I am too old to be still getting presents.
   Cathy and I were terribly busy and spent a lot of money on ornaments and lights
  for our Christmas tree. It’s quite a sight. In a week or so, when the snapshots are
  developed, we’ll send some your way.
   We are finally getting settled after the move, but it will take a while before we can
  really call Atlanta home. The job is turning out to be better than we expected. Our
  new home and neighbors are so great. We are getting along very well with our
  neighbors.
   Spring comes early down here, I’m told. So if you’d like to thaw out sooner than
  usual, give some thoughts to heading south and spending some time with us. There’s
  plenty of room for everyone, and we’d love to see you.
   We sincerely wish you a wonderful New Year.
   Full of lots of love,
   Steve

  Key:
  Dear Sir/Madame,
  I feel I must protest about your refrigerator of poor quality, although I have hesitated for some time before coming to make such a decision.
  Three months ago, out of my need, after having visited a great number of appliances stores, I bought an “Electro” refrigerator in the South Street Appliances Store. It cost me 299 pounds, with terms of guarantee: one year. After I put it into use for a short time, something was wrong with the newly - bought refrigerator. It turned out that the salad compartment drawer broke within one week. In my opinion, the possible cause lies in the poor interior design. To my annoyance, the thermostat also broke down yesterday.
  Now I am writing to you to ask you to replace this one or make repairs under guarantee.
  I hope that we can manage to sort this out amicably.
  Yours

   Dear Gabe and Lois,
   Your wedding was beautiful, and the reception was elegant. Now that you are
  back from your honeymoon, you still haven’t received a wedding gift from Don and
  me. We feel badly about it and want you to know what happened.
  Six weeks before your wedding date I called Linden’s Finer China to order a
  place setting of your dinnerware. I was assured the china would be gift wrapped and delivered immediately. Two weeks before the wedding I called again because I had not received an invoice. I was informed that your pattern was out of stock, but would be coming in any day.
   Today I went to Linden’s in person, saw that the china is in, watched them wrap it
  up and wrote a card to include with it.
   “Better late than never” isn’t much consolation because we tried so hard to be on
  time. Many happy years to you.
  Fondly,
  Catherine
