Letter With Short Personal Greeting

Dear Mr. Tom,

I am sorry to have replied sooner to your letter of 25 October regarding the book English and Commercial Correspondence. My Export Director is in London and Paris on business; as I am dealing with his work as well as my own I am afraid my correspondence has fallen behind.

Whether this book should be published in hardback or paperback is a decision I must leave to my Editorial Director, Trevor, to whom I have passed on your letter. No doubt she will be writing to you very soon.

I hope you are keeping well.

With best wishes,

Yours sincerely,
