Write a letter to your friend requesting him to give you a loan of money.
January 2, 20…..
My dear Ved,
My examinations are at hand. We shall be issued our roll numbers next week. But we shall have to clear all our hostel dues before that. Sadly enough, I have not received my money-order from home.
I received a letter from my mother only today. She has said that my papa is not at home. He has gone out on a business tour. He was expected back in the last week of December. But he had to prolong his stay. Now he will come home on 10th January.
Whatever little money my mother had, she has sent it to me. I still fall short of Rs. 500/-. Please give me a loan of Rs. 500/-. I promise to return this money next month. I hope you will accept my request.
