Dear Friend,

I am extremely sorry to say that I could not keep up the appointment and I could not meet you last evening as per scheduled. I am afraid you might have thought of me as a person of undependable conduct.

I was just prepared to leave for your residence when I suddenly received an important 'SMS' informing me that my younger brother was coming by the evening train. As there was no one else to receive him at the railway station, my father being away on an official tour, I had to leave for the railway station. As the train was late, I had to wait for hours together. When I reached my home with my younger brother, it was too late to keep up the appointment and meet you.

       I take the earliest opportunity of writing this letter to you, apologizing for the inconvenience caused to you.

       Assuring you of every courtesy (good manners).
                                                                       Ever sincerely yours,
