A Letter of Thanks
July 15, 1999
Dear Mrs. Moore,
You may be sure that I shall always continue to enjoy the week which I have just spent in your home with Louise. You did everything possible to make us happy. The parties, the picnics, and the lunches were all so delightful that I can never thank you enough for all the trouble you took for us.
Mother and I are already counting the days until Louise will be here with us. Tell her that I will write to her tomorrow.
The trees are bare. Bitter north winds have stripped them of all their leaves. But since winter comes, spring won't be far away.
本文是一封简单的感谢信, 是一封私人信函, 信中内容包括两点: 在Moore 家度过了一周快乐的时光, 对此表示感谢；期盼Louise的到来。在私人信函中用词一般比较简单, 语气亦较随意。
