My Dear Khan Sahib,

I am really soriy to know that our dog Sheru has spoiled some of your rose and other plants. I know how proud you are of your garden. Sheru is a well-behaved pet, and I am at a loss as what made it to adventure in your garden yesterday. However, I have taken measures to keep it confined to our house so that it may possibly never run off info your garden. I am sincerely sorry and apologise. I shall send my gardener to see how best to make amends for the flowerbeds, you so carefully and personally attend to. My gardener comes on Sundays. Therefore, it would be very kind of you to let me know what time is convenient to you on the Sunday next.

I shall also be grateful if you please accept a few of my rose plants as a compensation, which I would send with my gardener.

I can assure you of my full neighbourly cooperation and goodwill.


Yours sincerely,
