Subject: Invitation to Tea Party

Dear Sir Williams,

It is my greatest pleasure to invite you and your lovely wife, Lady Sarah Williams, to join me for a Tea Party at the Troy Equestrian Club House on June 25, 2010, at 5 pm. The party will be attended by other celebrated equestrians from around the United States and even from parts of Europe.

Knowing that you share the same passion as me in good breeds, I would highly welcome your opinion on my latest stable collection of foals and stallions before they make their debut in any public appearance. This collection has been specially bred from Africa which is renowned for its beauty and speed. Also, I believe that the upcoming Boston Turf Club race will be a major subject of discussion at the party. I hope your insights will encourage young equestrians to excel in the sport.

The Royal Highness the Princess Royal of the United Kingdom will be in attendance. She is an accomplishes equestrian and an Olympic medalist. I am sure you would like her company very much at the party.

There will be a few expert breeders present to offer their opinions on my latest collection. It will give me great honor to have you grace this occasion. I look forward to exchanging views with you then.

Respectfully yours,

Henry Fanning.
