Dear Anthony,

I hope you and everyone else at your home are doing good.

I am afraid I have a grim news for you. I will be expected to work on coming weekend due to some strict deadline at office. I know, we already made a plan for movie night and how we were anticipating watching this movie since last two months, but I hope you sympathise with me since you know the situation at my workplace.

I believe Benedict was also interested in watching The Marvel movie, and upon checking with him I came to know that he failed to procure the tickets. It would be nice of you to take him with you to watch The Marvel. Being a Marvel fan, Benedict would not bore you and you two will have a lot to discuss after the movie as well.

I hope you understand and you can re-watch the movie with me on next weekend. Anyway, I hope you have a good time this weekend and do write me back about the movie.

Warm Regards,

Gauri

Dear Anthony,

I hope you and everyone else at your home your family are doing well good. (That seems to be a very strange thing to ask when you have been discussing going to the cinema in a few days! We ask this of people we do not know very well or people we haven't seen in a very long time.)

I am afraid I have a grim (Someone close to you has died or is in hospital with COVID. ) news for you. I will be expected to work on coming weekend due to a some strict deadline at office. I know, we already made a plan for a movie night and how we were anticipating seeing watching this movie since (wrong word) last two months, but I hope you sympathise with me since you know the situation at my workplace.

I believe Benedict was also interested in seeing watching The Marvel movie, and upon checking with him I came to know that he failed to procure (You need to write something that makes sense.) a ticket because the show was sold out. the tickets. He can use my ticket. It would be nice of you to take him with you to watch The Marvel. Being a Marvel fan, Benedict would not bore you and you two will have a lot to discuss after the movie as well.

I hope you understand and you can see it a second time re-watch the movie with me on next weekend. (But don't you have to go to work because of the deadline?) Anyway, I hope you have a good time this weekend and do write me back about the movie.

Warm Regards, (That is a formal closing. It is good for business, but it is too stiff and formal for a friendly letter.)

Thank you ma'am for this feedback, also, could you help me with the below queries?

1) How should one write the greetings part for a general scenario like above?

2) What would be a better sign off for an informal letter?

Here is an example of an informal letter between two friends.


Hi Anthony;

I know we have been planning to go see the newest Marvel film opening next Friday, and you were fast enough to acquire two tickets for us. It will be a smash hit, because the tickets completely sold out in only ten minutes! But I have some bad news for you. My boss gave me an urgent Monday am deadline and I have to finish the work over the weekend. I am afraid that if I do not get started on it early Friday, I will not have enough time to finish. You know how difficult my new boss is, and I cannot afford to offend him. I missed one deadline a month ago, and he really chewed me out and told me that my job was on the line.

So I regret that I will have to take a raincheck on this one. But my good friend Benedict has been dying to see it. He also tried to get a ticket, but was too late. I think you will enjoy his company as he is a big Marvel fan and has seen every past show, more than once. He can use my ticket. It will work out perfectly.

Besides, if it is really a big hit, we can get tickets for a show later in the month, when I have less pressure from my boss. Let me know if this is ok with you, and I will put you in touch with Benedict so you two can make the arrangements.

Cheers,

Adam
