Write a letter of regret to a friend for being unable to attend his birthday party.
11, Garden Villa,
Dated: October 16, 200__
I am very sorry for I could not attend your birthday party as I was ill. You know I cannot resist ice creams and I overate it and got a throat infection. It was accompanied by slight fever. But, I hope you must have enjoyed your day surrounded by your loved ones.
I am sending your birthday present by V.V.P. and hope you will like it.
Give my regards to your parents and love to Tina and a very happy birthday to you again.
Closing on the hopeful note of hearing from you soon.
