Dear Michael,

Received your letter yesterday and I’m really excited to know that you’re visiting London after three long years.

I remember the last occasion we met, and it was in 2019. The week you stayed with my family was so wonderful, and all of us really enjoyed your presence. This time too, I took a week off and I’ve some plans to make your visit memorable.

Michael, it was me who picked you up from the airport last time. Unfortunately, I’ve a business meeting at Brighton in the morning the day of your arrival, and is expected to be back only in the afternoon. So, this time I will not be greeting you at the Gatwick.

I spoke with James, one of my close friends, who agreed to collect you from the gate and drop you at my house. He will be there at the airport at 11:30 am, half an hour before the expected time of arrival. His phone number is +44xxxxxxxxxx. I gave your number to him too.

Safe journey dear.

Regards,

Lucy
