It pains me very much to hear from respected uncle that you have failed at the intermediate Examination this year by a few marks. Really, your failure is something unexpected, but remembers that examination is by chance. Don't be disheartened but on the other hand work hard and I am sure that you will certain get first division this year.
Please don't be nervous and my sincere advice is not to lose heart.

Dear Mr. Robert
I want to bring to your kind notice that your bull dog is a permanent nuisance to us. It not only barks but also chases and bites. Yesterday it bit a postman who is in the hospital. In frightens children who dare not move freely .Your dog also enters our garden and spoils plants. It barks so loudly that we cannot drive it out. You have every right to keep it to look after your house, but it is not proper to keep it loose. I hope you will realize our problems and will not give us any chance for complaint. With best regards
