dear miss nancy,
much to my regret i was unable to keep my promise to attend your birthday party last saturday, owing to the fact that my little son was suddenly taken ill early that day.
hoping to see you soon.
Much to my regret, / I am terribly sorry that I am unable to______ .
It is mainly because at that time I will ______, which is quite out of my expectation, and that conflicts with your ______. Therefore I am forced to adjust my schedule and cannot make my presence on your______ . I sincerely hope that you will enjoy a good time. By the way, can we ______? I hope to see you soon.
I am really sorry again and I hope that you will understand.
i am afraid that you will think me unpardonably negligent in not having answered your letter dated 7, december sooner, but when i have told you the reason, i trust you will be convinced that the neglect was excusable. when your letter arrived, i was just in hong kong. as my family could not forward it to me during my absence, it has been, therefore, lying on my desk until the moment when i took it up. now the first thing i have to hasten to do is to write to you these few lines to express my deep regret.
i enjoyed many pleasant sights during my trip. i shall be pleased to give you an account to of them when i see you next.
excuse me for my long delaying in returning to you your“robinson crusoe” which i read through with great interest. i had finished reading the book and was about to return it when my cousin came to see me. never having seen the book, she was so interested in it that i had to retain it longer. however, i hope that in view of the additional delight thus afforded by your book, you will overlook my negligence in not returning it sooner.
thanking you again for the loan.
I am looking forward to your visit. just think, after all these years of writing to each other, we will finally have the chance to meet! however, i am sorry that i will not be able to meet you at the airport as soon as you arrive.
The reason is that your flight will arrive early in the morning, and the earliest i can get to the airport will be about an hour after you land. please wait for me in the arrival lounge. you should be able to have breakfast there while you wait.
By the way, as we have never met i must tell you how to recognize me. i am of medium height and have a small moustache. in addition, i will be carrying a copy of the morning newspaper tucked under my left arm.
Looking forward to our meeting.
Dear Sir or Madam,
I’m writing this letter to apologize to you. I’m so sorry that we made a mistake about the shipment of vacuum cleaners.
Those vacuum cleaners we sent to you were meant to be sent to European countries, but as the old worker was retired, the new one wasn’t so experienced. Besides, the model number and the price of goods in March and July are so similar that the worker mistaken them.
I am awfully sorry for this and we promise you a replacement shipment. We will also give a 10% discount to compensate.
I do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and I will try my best to avoid the same accident happening again.
As you are reading this letter, I bet that you have seen/heard about what happened earlier in our country.
Tourists were hostages of a policeman here, Rolando Mendoza. After a few hours of the horrible crime, some of the victims were dead including the hostage-taker.
I wrote this letter not just to apologize but also to let everyone know that we Filipinos are not all like Mendoza. We are loving and good-hearted people.
For so many years, our country has been standing tall and surpassing every dilemma; be it small or big. Years ago (back when I wasnt born yet), you have watched us fight for what we think is right. We fought for the democracy of our nation.. The EDSA revolution. But thats just one out of many.
Second. We Filipinos have been serving other countries for our families and we treat you as our own as well. With all due respect, I thank you all for giving us the trust through the years. For helping us to become what we are now.
The Philippines is more than just a group of islands. We are a nation of strong and remarkable people. A country of beauty and love known to be hospitable and well-valued. I humbly apologize for what happened tonight. No one in this world would want something like that to happen for life should be valued.
I politely ask the attention of the world. Please do not judge and mistreat us just
because of what happened tonight. I have been searching the net and found terrible things. Hong Kong advices to avoid travels here, China and HK bans Filipinos and that Philippines is the worst place to go.
I cant blame you for what you have decided but I hope that you could understand. Our country is now in a sea of problems. And I know for sure that we helped you in a way or another. Let peace and understanding reign this time.
I know that this letter will just be trash but I wish that you would understand. On behalf of the Philippine population.. WE ARE SORRY.
As a song puts it
And I believe that in my life I will see an end to hopelessness, giving-up and suffering. And we all stand together this one time then no one will get left behind. Stand up for life. STAND UP FOR LOVE

Once again, I am sorry for any inconvenience caused. Hope you can accept my apologies and understand my situation.

Dear Prof. Patent,
I am very sorry to inform you that I did not manage to complete the book report you assigned last week, due to a sudden illness falling upon me a few days ago. For the past few days I have been in hospital with a continuous fever, which has thus prevented me from any academic activity. I hereby submit the doctors note.
I would be very much obliged if you could grant me another week for the task, as my health is turning better.
Hope you can understand my situation and accept my apology.
