  I do apologize for having to send this letter about Saturday night. When I accepted your invitation, I simply forgot that Saturday was a holiday and that my own guests were not leaving until Sunday morning. It is difficult for me to make a choice. Though I also wonder to meet you very much. I could not very well go out by myself and leave the guests at my home. I hope you know how sorry I am not to be with you this Saturday. Should I make a visit to you in my other spare time?

Thank you very much.

Dear Schoolmates,

I’m a four-year student from the English Department. In two weeks, I will graduate from this university. I’ve decided not to bring my bike with me when I leave. So I’d like to part with it, and sell it to someone who might need it. It is half new, dark and light. With curved bars, it is mainly for lady’s use. As far as the price is concerned, I’d like to sell it for eighty yuan. Those interested in it can come and have a look at it before making a decision.
