Mr. Guisseppe Salvatore,

Sales Head,

Xenium Biocorp,

56/1, Dream Towers,

Times Square, New York

Subject: Apologies for delay in submission of report

Respected Sir,

I would like, to begin with apologizing for submitting the report late by almost seven days. I am very sorry for the delay I caused in the subsequent work of yours. But allow me to tell you the reason for the delay. My younger daughter fell off the swing and suffered a fractured wrist. It was a minor hairline fracture and since my wife and my elder daughter were out of town I had to look after she and I couldn’t complete the work on time.

It was also sloppy of me that I hadn’t started the work in advance and careless and irresponsible of me to not to inform you of my predicament. If I had done so somebody else could have completed the reports on time. I had panicked and I couldn’t think straight and my whole attention was on my daughter. If I informed you, I am sure you would have supported me but I didn’t give that choice.

I am extremely sorry and shameful for my behavior. I will make sure that this type of situation doesn’t repeat itself in the future. In the case of any type of problem, I will always inform you. I hope you will forgive me.

Thanking You.

Yours Sincerely,

Ben Kingsley
