Writing May 19, 2002
Dear Professor Wang：
On behalf of the Student Union of the English Department, I am writing to invite you to give a lecture on Chinese history.
We have planned to have such a lecture at 2:30 p. m. in Lecture Hall 419, on May 25.
Looking forward to your lecture. Inform us in advance if you can’t come.
Thank you very much for the dinner that you invited my husband and I to yesterday. The food not only looked and smelled fabulous but tasted great, and my husband and I enjoyed it very much. Therefore, we would like to invite you to dinner at 7 p.m. this Friday at the Northwest Chinese restaurant to return your kindness and hospitality.
Please do come.
I will be away for a while. The key to the cottage is under the doormat, and the food is in the refrigerator. After entering the house, lock the door from inside at once. The cottage is far away from the nearest town, and the area is not quite safe from burglars. So I think the saying is right “Where there is precaution, there is no danger”.
Have a nice stay here.
I heard from your sister that you are to be out of hospital and back with your family and friends. How wonderful it is, Rebaca! I just couldn't tell you how all of us worry about you. We all understand that it is a hard time for you and your family. Please let us know if you need help and we'll try our best as usual.
I saw Tom yesterday and he looked much better when we talked about your coming home. And your coming home. And your little daughter looked much prettier than last year. We all love her.
Bob is so delighted to hear your fine progress. Keep it on and come back soon, Rebaca, We all feel happy for you.
Dear Wang Qiang，
I'm glad to learn that you are busy preparing for college entrance exams. Where there is a strong will， there is a success. I am sure that you will overcome all kinds of difficulties in your study
I'm planning to go to Wuxi and look around in the city for a few days. I'll take the train and arrive at 6 o'clock a.m. on May 1st. Will you please come and meet me at the station？ I'm going to stay in Wuxi till May 4th. Please help me book a hotel room. I hope to stay in a hotel around the downtown area but the price shouldn't be very high. I don't mind if the room is small. Another thing. Can you book a ticket for me back to Shanghai on 4th？
All the best，
To Whom It May Concern:
Three days ago, I just got the watch I ordered from your store. You sent it on time and thanks for that. But I found several problems. First, the color is not what I wanted. I wanted golden, but you gave me silver instead. I thought that would be OK, if everything else is good enough. The stranger thing happens. The watch gets five minutes slower every day, so I have to keep correcting it. Because of this, I feel nervous about being late for work. I really cannot stand it any longer. So I have to write this letter to request giving the watch back to you and full money back to me.
Along with the letter is the copy of the order.
Thank you. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
