I am terribly sorry to tell you that I am unable to attend your birthday party next Tuesday evening. That is owing to the fact our physiological teacher has assigned us quite a few experiments and required us to hand in our reports of the results before next Tuesday, and it happens that your birthday party is going to be held when I will be fully occupied by the assignments. So I cannot go to celebrate your birthday personally and I really regret that I would miss the perfect chance of enjoying myself with so many friends.
But I’d like to wish you a happy birthday here and will send you a gift in advance. Besides, please give my regards to our friends when you meet them at the party.
Cordially, Li Ping

Dear Mr. Rogers,
It is my great pleasure to show my hearty thanks to you for your hospitality and courtesy during my stay in London.
Originally I only wanted to call on you and gave my father’s regard to you, as it had been three years since you and he last saw each other. But you insisted that I stay in your house during my visit to London and took good care of my life as if I were a family member of you instead of the daughter of one of your friends. You really added greatly to my convenience and pleasure of the whole trip.
Thank you again for your kindness and I hope that I will have the opportunity to return your charming hospitality.

Dear Sir or Madam,
I bought an electronic dictionary from your online store on January 1st,but I found it has some problems after using it for a short period of time.
To egin with,the battery needs recharging after a mere 2 hours of use.This means that I need to carry my charger with me when I go out for a day.In addition,the buttons on the electronic dictionary are so small that it is nearly impossible to type anything with them.Personally,I find this to be completely unacceptable.
Therefore,I would like to either change the electronic dictionary for another model that works well or a full refund.Your help is greatly appreciated.

金钱是一切吗?In Money Everything?
I don‘t think money is everything， but we can’t do without it. Fox example， money can‘t buy us happiness and a good education. And for another example， money can’t buy us good health and a l ong life. But we can not live without money. We need it for our daily necessities such as food， clothes and transportation. What‘s more， we need it to live a better life. In short， we should learn the value of money and make the most of its advantages.
Where to live —in the City or in the Country
Some people like living in the city because city life has many advantages. They think there are more job opportunities in cities， life there is more colorful and meaningful than that in the country， and there are more modern conveniences in cities for people to enjoy.
But some other people prefer to live in the countryside. They say life in the countryside is closer to nature and better for their health， life there is quieter and that country people are more honest than city people.
I would like to live in a city when I am young to earn enough money and I live in the countryside when I am old for having a quite life.
Dear Professor Wang：
On behalf of the Student Union of the English Department， I am writing to invite you to give a lecture on Chinese history.We have planned to have such a lecture at 2：30 p. m. in Lecture Hall 419， on May 25. Looking forward to your lecture. Inform us in advance if you can not come.
男女应该平等吗?(Should Men and Women Be Equal?)
Should Men and Women Be Equal?
People have different ideas about this issue， Some people say that men are superior to women in ability because men are physically stronger， do most of the hard labor in the world and hold most important positions. Other people believe that women have the ability to compete with men. There have been many famous women state leaders and great scientists in the world. We should fully carry out the principle “to each according to his work” so that the enthusiasm of both men and women for work can be fully aroused.
The Bicycle in China
The bicycle is the most popular means of transportation in China. China is a country “on bicycle wheels”。People ride them for various purposes such as going to and from school and work. Bicycles are very cheap and easy to buy in China.
There are many advantages to riding a bicycle. First， using a bicycle can greatly help reduce the air pollution in many big cities. Second， people can improve their health by riding a bicycle.
The future of bicycle will be bright. In some European countries， city governments have arranged pedestrians to use “public bicycles” to travel round the city center free of charge.
Thank you very much for the dinner that you invited my husband and I to yesterday. The food not only looked and smelled fabulous but tasted great， and my husband and I enjoyed it very much. Therefore， we would like to invite you to dinner at 7 p.m. this Friday at the Northwest Chinese restaurant to return your kindness and hospitality.
Please do come.
Fake and poor quality commodities are a serious problem. Many things can be faked such as soybean sauce， vinegar， bicycles， and many other things. The interests of consumers are affected， and many enterprises keep losing money because of cheap fake commodities.
There are some reasons for such a phenomenon. The major one is the desire of some people to “make easy money”。These people think nothing of the law of the protection of intellectual property rights.
To get rid of fake and poor quality commodities， the government should educate people to obey the law of the protection of individual intellectual property rights and not to sell any fake goods. The government should punish severely and close down all the factories producing fake goods.

I will be away for a while. The key to the cottage is under the doormat， and the food is in the refrigerator. After entering the house， lock the door from inside at once. The cottage is far away from the nearest town， and the area is not quite safe from burglars. So I think the saying is right “Where there is precaution， there is no danger”.
Have a nice stay here.
