RE: Request for House-sitting
I hope this letter finds you well. I am writing to request a big favor from you. I am scheduled to attend a week-long conference in Australia from September 10-17, 2010. As I stay alone, the house would be left empty with Mimi and Fifi, my pet poodles, all alone. An empty house in my neighborhood is not favorable as the ailing economy today attracts a lot of neighborhood crimes. Hence, I would like to request your kind assistance to ‘house’-sit for me.
I understand that it will be a school term break. You can bring your family down for a holiday to New York. The refrigerator would be well stocked, and you are free to use everything in my house.
I look forward to your positive reply soon so that I can confirm my travel plans.
Thank you in advance,
Love & Kisses,
