Dear Mr. Nathan
I was halfway to the Western Union office, struggling against a chilly North Westerly wind when I had a sudden thought. I have nothing to keep me here in England, in winter, except perhaps a long jail sentence. I’ve always rather fancied the idea of getting away to a sunnier climate and am pleased to say that I have secured the last economy class seat on flight BA055, arriving Johannesburg 06:45 local time on the 17th December.
I shall ask my partner to collect me from the airport and would hope to arrive at your offices by about 9 on Friday morning.
I look forward to meeting you in person!
Mr. B. Nodelay.
