My dear Arun,

Well and wish to hear the same from you. I am glad to share our team’s victory in the match held at Pune. I regret that you are unable to participate in the match on account of your leg sprain. But mere thanking words are not enough for you for lending me your branded cricket bat. Anyway I express my sincere gratitude here to you. I scored a century with the help of your bat. I am sorry to tell you that I have absent mindedly left your bat in the hotel room. I really regret for the loss of your precious bat. Anyway I will replace your bat with a new branded one.

Convey my regards to your parents.

Your lovable friend,

John.
