December 12, 2016
Mr. Edward T. Minnick
547 West Street
San Diego, CA 95411
Dear Mr. Minnick:
Of the paramount respect, I am delighted to inform you that my sister’s wedding date has been settled, and to enlighten you that the marriage ceremony is scheduled to take place on January 18, 2016, and being the youngest sister after her, I have to make some special arrangements, and need to organize a few things to make that day a pomp.
For doing so, please grant me a five-day leave, starting from January 14 to January 18, 2017. I really want to make this shindig a memorable day for her. I give you my word that I will complete all my unfinished work within a week after I come back to the office. I have also asked Ms Amanda Collins to look after my work in my absence. Moreover, I’ll be available to cooperate with you, in case, anything urgent comes up.
I have enclosed your invitation letter with this letter and will be glad to see you at wedding ceremony.
Looking forward for an effective response.
