Letter Sample #140 – A friend has left some items at your home

GT Writing Task 1 (Letter Writing) Sample # 140

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

A friend has recently stayed at your home for a couple of days. After he/she left, you noticed that he/she had left some items at your home.

Write a letter to the friend. In your letter,

  • explain how happy you were to have your friend at your home
  • mention what he/she has left at your home
  • suggest him/her how you can arrange to send those items

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear …………………….,


Model Answer:

Dear Miraj,

I hope that you enjoyed your three-days stay at my place. I just wished that you could spend a few more days with us, but, unfortunately, life is such that we just don’t always have our wishes fulfilled. I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed your stay at our home.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that you’ve left your notebook and a wallet at my place by mistake before leaving for your home. I am assuming that you have forgotten that you even took the notebook out of your luggage, to begin with, and, as such, you probably thought that the notebook was sitting right inside the luggage. I also think you have noticed your wallet missing but perhaps could not think that you left it at my place. Your wallet contains a bank card and some cash.

Now that I know your notebook and wallet are with me, I can arrange to send them to you in a courier mail service. Alternatively, I could have a co-worker of mine, whose family lives very close to your hometown, and who visits them pretty much every month, to deliver it to you next month. So, the choice is yours.

Take care.

Warm wishes,

Rahul

    Dear Alex,

    How are you? I hope this letter finds you and your family members in good spirits and great health. I must thank you for every day and minute that we spent together in the coastal area in my hometown. I really enjoyed the time, especially when we shared our childhood and high school memories.

    When you left my home, I realised that you forget your winter jacket, which we call a pullover, but I believe that you understand what I mean. I wonder how you could forget your jacket in such cold weather but perhaps you have had another winter clothing that you used when you returned.

    I could easily take one day off from my work and deliver your jacket immediately to you if you like. Or if you prefer I could deliver your cloth through the express delivery service like DHL right away and you will receive your jacket in a day or two. Please let me know which you will prefer.

    With warm wishes,

    Farkhad

  2. I love the story. Thanks, take care.
