Model Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

My name is Phillip Morris, and I am writing this letter to request to advertise something important in your popular daily newspaper. Please let me explain below what I really intend to do.

Actually, I am planning to organize a big meeting, exactly after two weeks from today, which is supposed to be attended by many people from all over the country. And the purpose of this important meeting is to create some kind of awareness among the people of our country about the devastating effects of the arsenic problem in many parts of our country.

In fact, as the publisher of a prominent newspaper like yours, you must have already known that because of the high level of arsenic presence, many people in our country are not able to drink their underground waters, and they are also suffering from some debilitating skin diseases that are hard to contain and control.

Therefore, I would like to request you to please advertise the news of this meeting, to be held on 19th of September, in your esteemed newspaper and do a great public service to the people of our country.

Yours faithfully,

Phillip Morris
