Dear Sir,

Re: Emergency Leave

With my deepest regrets, I have to request for leave today. I am sorry for the short notice of this leave request as it is an emergency. My child has taken ill this morning and I have to admit her into a hospital. She has a high fever of 43 degrees C with pain in her stomach.

If there is any urgent matter at work, please feel free to call me on my hand phone; I shall make myself available over the phone. I will report back to work as soon as my child is in stable condition.

Thank you for your kind understanding on my emergency leave request. I deeply apologize for any inconvenience caused by this sudden circumstance.

Yours faithfully,

Rudy Browner
