Dear Katherine

               I hope this letter will find you in the best of your health and high spirits. As you know that my birthday falls on 20th October. My father is giving a grand party at my residence on this occasion. I have invited all my friends in this party. So through this letter I am inviting you to attend my birthday party with your family members. It would be a good opportunity to meet and celebrate with all the friends altogether. The party will begin at 8 p.m. You try to come a bit early. I am sure that you will not disappoint me. Please convey my regards to your parents.

Yours lovingly
