Dear Dr G.,
Thank you very much for your letter about our recent paper on...and for the enclosed reprints of your own work on the properties of...We have found it very stimulating. As you have pointed out little can be inferred from...data owing to the lack of experimental work on most of...
Still it is of interest to note that P. has recently satisfactorily analysed... His results certainly corroborate your conclusions.

Dear John,
Thank you much for your letter which arrived this morning. This is just a brief note to say that we shall consider your suggestions at the next meeting of our association and let you know about the decision reached.
Yours sincerely

Letter +7.
Dear Professor N.,
Thank you very much for your letter of 15th June. I am sorry that my previous letter took so long to reach you. I think this must have been due to the fact that it was sent by surface mail instead of airmail. I am making sure that the present letter is posted to you by airmail. You should get it within a week or so.
Yes, indeed, all is ready here to receive you as Visiting Professor. We are all looking forward to making your personal acquaintance.
With kindest regards,
Yours sincerely

Letter +8.
Dear Professor F.,
My deepest apologies for not having replied to your last letter at an earlier date. I was away from my office during much of the month of March. I have left, however, instructions with my secretary who arranged for a copy of the monograph on...to be secured for you. We shall get it started on its way tomorrow.
Yours sincerely

Letter +9.
Dear Mrs D.
When I realize how long I have delayed in replying to your letter, I feel very much embarrassed. In both my personal and professional life I have been very busy and now I find - to my distress - that I have neglected important things. Please forgive me. As soon as things settle down a bit, I shall do all I can in the matter. And, of course, when the book on...comes out in English translation I shall make a point of sending it to you.
Best wishes.
Yours sincerely

Letter +10.
Dear Mr.L.,
It has been such a long time since I wrote to you. I meant to do so immediately on my arrival, but pressure on my time was so great that I have got behind with my correspondence.
There are not many things to report. You will be interested, however, to learn that there is a conference ahead of us. You will soon get a preliminary announcement. I do hope that your many commitments will not prevent you from attending.
Kindest regards
Yours sincerely

Letter +11.
Dear Lewis,
I was very happy to receive your letter, which came so promptly, and I thank you most sincerely for your greetings. I am only sorry that I have been so long in replying, but you will understand how much there is to do these days with the conference ahead of us. Time flies past ever so quickly and I just couldn't sit down to writing before now. We like to recall the day you visited us here and hope we shall have the pleasure again some day.
With kindest regards,

Kindly excuse me for approaching you and seeking advise. As you may remember I am in charge of a project concerning...When we met last we discussed the possibility of cooperation. I wonder if you could pass this letter on to a worker in your group who would be willing to contact us? We should be most grateful for any suggestion of yours.
I am enclosing two reprints of my papers on the subject of...
With my personal regards,
Yours sincerely

Letter +14.
Dear Paul,
Yes, I certainly remember you. It has been a pleasant surprise when Dr. N. who gave us a lecture here the other day, brought a note from you. To think that I have been on close contact with Dr.N. for some time never realizing that you work in the same institute! And I have often spoken to my wife about you, wondering how are you getting on with your studies and research.
You can see from my address I am living in the center of Sofia now. What a pity you couldn't come with Dr.N. this time. You would have been most welcome here. I should have loved to introduce you to my family and make you meet my fellow-workers at the Institute. Be sure and come here sometime soon.
Dr.N. will have told you a short visit to Britain of a group of Bulgarian scientists is planned for next spring. If the trip comes off, I shall be delighted to look you up at the London address indicated in your letter. Anyhow, I shall make a point resumed contact.
With best wishes,
Yours sincerely

Dear Professor K.,
I have received your kind letter of 2nd October in which you refer to my paper on... . Thank you very much indeed for having gone through the manuscript. I gladly accept all your suggestions and will make the appropriate corrections and amendments.
Yours sincerely

Letter +17.
Dear Professor H.,
This is to inform you that I have heard from the Editor of the ... Journal. My paper on...is with them now. He reacts to it favorably and so does the referee. The appropriate committee, however, has still to give their stamp of approval, which the editor says he feels sure of. It means a lot to me. I wish to add that I am fully aware of your share in my success. Your kind words of encouragement have prompted me to try to publish the paper in the ... Journal.
Kindest regards,
Yours sincerely

Letter +18.
Dear Mr E.,
Thank you very much for your specimen copy of the ... Journal. I have read it with great interest. I am afraid, however, that it is concerned with a different type of articles from the one on ... I am writing now. Articles published in the ... Journal are supposed to be reviews of a particular region of research not for specialists in that field but for professional scientists in quite different disciplines as well as for undergraduate students of the subject in question. They are intended to provide information of a rather general character.
I shall try to publish it in one of the appropriate specialists reviews.
Needless to repeat that I am very grateful for your interest and also for the Journal you sent.
Yours sincerely

Letter +19.
Dear Kenneth,
I have just heard from the ... press. They declined to publish my book. I presume it was because of the delay between my first mentioning it to them and the sending of the revised edition. They might have published something similar in the meanwhile, or are just not enough interested in this line of research. I cannot blame them of course. I must try elsewhere or publish it in country in English to give it a wider circulation. For the moment I have nothing definite to go upon.
Nevertheless, I thank you very much for your interest in my book and all the trouble you have taken introducing me as you did to Mr D. of the ... Press.
Best regards to Nora and yourself.
Yours sincerely

Letter +20.
Dear Bob,
I am very glad that you accept my offer of sharing with me in the publication of the paper. Revised by you and supplemented by your data, the paper will present a fairly complete survey of the state of research in our field and will certainly be suitable for publication in the highly specialized review... .
I am looking forward to receiving your version of the paper.

Letter +21.
Dear Ralph,
There is one thing I want to add to my official letter of thanks for all the kindness extended to me at your Institute last week. I am expected to write a kind of report on my trip including the visit to your Institute. The report is to be published in our Bulletin. Since the responsibility of writing the report is among my first priorities of work and since my visits were both brief and very full, I am likely to make errors of judgement.
To check this, I am hoping to forward copies of my paper to persons who might appropriately correct me. Do you think I could possibly take advantage of your competence and kindness and send a copy to you for your critical comment? I should greatly appreciate your in this matter.
Many thanks in advance and kindest personal regards.
P.S. Could you possibly pay special attention to the appraisal of the results obtained in the experiments!

Letter +22.
Dear Herbert,
There is no doubt their book is timely and will come in handy. It is also concise and well presented. It suffers, however, from some defects that may detract from its value if they do not remove them in time. Quite a few are no minor mistakes.
I can see clearly now that they failed to emphasize the validity of... . More serious is their omission of any reference to the work going on at the ... Laboratory. That wouldn't do.
With regard to your own suggestion, in the first place you are right in pointing out that the quotation in Section ... is - to say the least of it - misleading. They had better leave it out entirely. In the second place the survey of .... is much too short and the description of the experiments in no way reflects the actual conditions in which they are being carried out.
On the other hand, Section ... does give a straightforward and accurate account of ..., which is a good thing. I quite agree that it is still far to go before the book can go to press, let alone see the light of day.
With my kindest regards,

Letter +23.
Dear Dr F.,
From recent literature I learned of your special interest in the experimental methods in ... . I should greatly appreciate receiving whatever papers you have available on the topic or related topics.
I enclose a book recently published by a team of workers in our Laboratory and should be only too pleased to provide reprints of papers describing experiments going in here, should you request any.
Kindest personal regards.
Yours sincerely

Letter +24.
Dear John,
We received the reprints of your paper a couple of days ago. We are delighted to have them and to learn more of your promising research and the theoretical premises. I was particularly interested to have your paper on ... and shall make a point of coming back to it at a later date.
Many thanks and kindest regards,

Letter +25.
Dear Dr T.,
Thank you very much indeed for supplying us through Dr O. of ... University with ... . Naturally, we shall duly inform you of the results obtained with it. We are very grateful for your understanding and kindness in the matter.
We shall soon write again.
Yours sincerely

Letter +26.
Dear Professor N.,
Thank you very much for your generosity in allowing me to take up some of your valuable time and discuss points of common interest.
Your work on ... aroused a great deal of interest here and I am quite sure that it will do the same at the meeting. It is really impressive advance in an entirely new field.
I shall be looking forward to hearing your paper at the ... meeting.
Yours sincerely

Letter +27.
Dear Dr L.,
Thank you most sincerely for all the many reprints you are sending me. I study your papers with great interest and so do my fellow-workers.
Our new apparatus has been working satisfactorily so far. I enclose a drawing which may be of interest to you. You may remember I was working on it when you visited us last summer.
I hope to have pleasure of seeing you again before long.
Yours sincerely

Letter +28.
Dear James,
Are you still deeply immersed in your work? What I mean is: are you ready to spare an hour or so for an interview with an old friend who wants very much to discuss a few points of common interest with you? I promise not to take up much of your time, just enough to allow him to peep into what is going on in the field. I must confess I am very deeply engrossed in promoting a new (if not entirely revolutionary) method in the area.
Looking forward to hearing from you at an early date.

Letter +29.
Dear Wallace,
I was thrilled to find your letter on my return from vacation. How interesting that your results should be so similar to mine obtained of course in different conditions. I certainly look forward to discussing them with you. We wondered for instance if you did any ... tests. And further, what sort of mechanism did you employ to make sure that no ... effect should alter the course of the experiment?
Best wishes.

Letter +30.
Dear Tim,
Thank you for another excellent collection of reprints. I am always delighted to see the progress that you and your group are making in the fascinating area you are studying.
We have had a very productive year here with Dr. L. being in the department, and among current projects we have been investigating the ... system to see if the same reactions are found there as for ... There appears to be no similarity whatsoever, and this is rather intriguing.
So much for our work. I shall be writing again when I find out if the trip to E. planned for next summer will come off after all. If it does, as I very much hope, I shall be delighted to look you up. Unfortunately C., where we are bound for, is rather a long way from your Department.
Best wishes.
Yours ever

Letter +31.
Dear Andrew,
It was a pleasure to have your letter. It is flattering that you should remember my comments on ... . I do happen to have a paper in draft-form concerned with the topic and I shall be pleased to send you a copy when it is in a somewhat better form. As to the problem of ... we discussed at X., I have given it much thought and am not very happy about some points. The test just doesn't work out.
With kindest regards,
Yours sincerely

Letter +32.
Dear Roger,
I am resuming our discussion at the point it was interrupted yesterday. I am ready to admit that a rather high percentage of the results obtained in the experiments have fallen below expectations. This, however, does not mean that we have been led along false paths. The technique is open to improvement and I hope we shall be soon in the position to eliminate most of the disturbing factors. Actually, the very deviations from the results predicted should help to give insight into how things work.
As things are, I don't dare to make any comments on the potential range of application of our theory. It is still far to go before we can make any serious surmise in this respect.
I see that I have gone to some length to pursue my argument. It is partly because I realize that yesterday I gave you rather disparate information on the work going on at our laboratory. We were pressed for time as you may remember trying as we did to squeeze the discussion into that short intermission.
I hope to see you again before you leave. By the end of the week I may have the reprints. I have not forgotten about them and will let you have them as soon as they are available.
Kindest regards and best wishes.
Yours sincerely

I am very grateful indeed for your offer to arrange for an American edition of my book and for all your assistance and encouragement.

Kindest regards.
Yours sincerely

Letter +38.
Dear Sir,
You will find enclosed the MS of my paper "..." in its abridged form to comply with your wish regarding its length. As the paper in question is only abridged and not revised I should be grateful if the original date as appearing in the first version of the paper, namely December 1st 19..., could be preserved so that the priority of the results described in the paper might be safeguarded.
As to your corrections of English I have accepted them all and made them accordingly.
I hope that in its present form the paper is acceptable for publication in your journal.
Yours faithfully

I have received your latter of 2nd Sept., in which you ask me to send you the fair copies of the diagrams for the paper of the above title. I did so on 27th Aug. and our letters must have crossed. I hope the diagrams have safely reached you by now.
Yours faithfully

Dear Mr T.,
Thank you very much for your letter of 23rd Nov. Under separate cover I am sending you the required diagrams with lettering omitted.

Letter +44.
My name is Jose A. Marso. I live in Cordoba and have long been a reader of your journal.
It is a source of information about the achievements of Soviet science of which we are often told in the local and national press.
My greatest interest lies in space studies and I would appreciate your further publications on the subject. Recently I heard over the radio and TV that researchers at the Crimean observatory have registered signals from other worlds. The news has moved me considerably and I would like to see material in this subject in your following issues and would also like to know more of the Crimean center.
I wish you much success, peace and happiness and thank you for the attention you have extended.
With respect,
Jose Angel Marso,

Letter +45.
Dear Jose Angel Marso,
Thank you for the most flattering reference to our work. We are planning to continue publications about Soviet space and hope you will find them interesting.
The information you have about extra-terrestrial signals registered at one of our observatories is not quite accurate, as it is related to a theoretical study by A. Arkhipov of the Radioastronomical Institute, Ukrainian Acad. Sc., in Kharkov. We have got in touch with him in connection with your letter and similar letters from other readers. His response you will find below. We must inform you that the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory of the USSR Academy of Sciences you mention is occupied in research entirely different from that in the Kharkov Institute and the two centers are not connected. You could have read of one of the discoveries made at the Crimean Observatory in an article by Acad. Severny A. (1913-1987) and Candidate of Sciences (Phys. & Math.), V. Kotov, in No 3, 1988.
Best regards

Letter +46.
Dear Editor,
We would be grateful to you if you could send us as much information as possible on the extra-terrestrial signals registered by Alexei Arkhipov, of the Radioastronomical Institute in Kharkov. If these signals can also be reserved in South America we could offer you assistance in your observations (the Radioastronomical Institute of Argentina has two 30-meter antennas)

Letter +49.
Dear Dr L.,
Thank you very much for your letter, which I read with the greatest interest, and for all the thoughts supplied. I am grateful for your well-meant words of criticism, for criticism from a specialist in the field such as you is very precious.
My letter is going to be a little longer than usual, for which I do apologize. I wish, however, to answer all points brought out by you.

Dear Norman,
This is a hurried note. Is there any chance of your attending the International Conference of ... in ..., which I understand begins at the end of August? It looks as if I might be able to go. I wonder if you could let me know your personal plans for the summer. In case we could not meet at the Conference I might be able to arrange a quick visit to your place if I go to ... for the Conference.
I hope to hear from you soon.

Dear Dr A.,
I apologize for sending you the enclosed registration form at this late date, and I hope that you will be able to accept my registration nevertheless.

It seems to me, however, that I would prefer to attend this meeting without delivering a paper. At the moment it is difficult to tell what the audience will be interested in hearing. I have worked in the past on ... More recently I have studied ... Much of my attention has recently been devoted to ... Would you, please, let me know whether you wish me present a formal communication.
Yours sincerely

Dear Professor M.,
This is just to tell you how much pleased we are that you accept the invitation to the Conference in Varna in mid-August. Your work on ... stimulated a great deal of interest here and I am sure that it will do the same at the Conference. It is a really impressive advance in an entirely new field.
Plans for the Conference are progressing well. We are all very active in making arrangements. Reservations at present stand around 1000 with more still to come.
Yours sincerely

Dear Dr. J.,
I am pleased and honoured by the invitation to participate in the conference on ..., which is to be held in ..., October 10-15, 19...
I must apologize for the slight delay in replying to your letter. I have just returned from Paris after a visit and did not have your address at hand. I did write, however, to Professor M., who is to be chairman of the session in which I was invited to present a paper.
I very much regret to say that it will not be possible for me to make any major trip autumn owing to bad health. The only thing I can do is send a few comments to Professor M. for him to use as he sees fit. Needless to emphasize that - were my health better - I should be delighted to attend your conference, which promises to be a great event.
Thank you once more for honoring me with your invitation.
With every good wish for the success of the conference.
Yours sincerely

Dear Howard,
Thank you very much for your letter of 3rd May and the information on the coming conference in S. As the conference does not represent my main fields of interest and is only very remotely connected with the research my Institute is carrying out just now, I should find it very difficult to arrange finance for the trip. It would be easier for me to visit you while I am on study leave at the end of September. If this time is not convenient to you, please, let me know and I can perhaps arrange an alternative.
Best regards.

Letter +77.
Dear Daniel,
I regret to have to tell you that I shall not be able to attend the C. Conference after all. It has been changed from 4-11 Feb. to 7-14 Feb. and my paper has been scheduled for 13 Feb., on which date I shall have to be somewhere also owing to a previous arrangement, Still I hope I may see you at the M. Conference planned for mid-autumn. Do you intend to attend it? Drop me a card and let me know.
Best regards.

Letter +78.
Dear Dr. N.,
Thank you for your letter of March 16th and the kind invitation. The Meeting sounds quite exciting and I very much hope to be able to attend it.
I am in the process of preparing a review paper on ... and I am aware of your own important work on this subject. It would be very helpful to me if you could send me, where available, reprints of Xerox copies of your papers. I would also appreciate it if you would let me know of any yet unpublished work, which may be relevant for the paper. It would also be of great help to me if you could send me references to some of the other important works on this subject by Italian authors.
Thank you very much for your prompt consideration of the above request.
Please give my best regards to all of your colleagues.
With best wishes,
Yours sincerely

Letter +79.
Dear Professor F.,

This is to tell you that my visit to ... is taking shape at last. I shall be free early in September and should be delighted to take advantage of your very kind offer to show me round various institutions should I stop in London. My only concern is that my visit should not inconvenience you at this time of year.
The regret at not having been able to see you when I was in London last year makes me anticipate all the more the pleasure of looking you up this time.
With kindest regards,
Yours sincerely
P.S. If anybody would care to hear something about our work here I should be pleased to talk about it.

Letter +86.
Dear Dr R.,
I was most grateful to receive your kind invitation to visit your laboratory at C. and spend a few days with you while in England. I should greatly welcome this opportunity. Unfortunately I am not going to attend the Congress. I have gone very carefully into the possibility of going to England but I most regretfully find it is impossible for me to stay away from my commitments this year.
If this could be done I should very much like to keep the invitation open and if another opportunity to go to England comes my way I shall write to you well in advance suggesting some possible dates.
I greatly enjoyed meeting you at O. last summer. I have heard very complimentary things said about your Laboratory and would consider it a privilege to visit it sometime in the near future. Many thanks again for your invitation.
Yours sincerely

Letter +87.
Dear Mr N.,
I am very sorry for the delay in answering your recent letter with its generous offer of hospitality. I am very grateful. The only trouble is that our plans cannot be made to the exact day. In all likelihood we would not get to England until around the first days of August. If this schedule should interrupt your vacation or upset other plans, please let us know and we will try to make other arrangements.
Many thanks and kindest regards.
Yours sincerely

It would be most convenient for me to visit your Institute before the meeting. If this time is not suitable to you, please let me know and I will try to arrange an alternative.
Once more thanks and best regards
Yours sincerely,
P.S. I have not come across Dr. D. yet, but hope to see him at the annual meeting of the ... Society next week. I left a note for him at this Institute to convey your regards.

Many thanks for your letter. I do appreciate your kind interest and offer to help. I greatly avail myself of it as you will see from what follows.

I should like to spend one complete week at O.
With regards,

Dear Barbara,
A lady named Jane (no one uses surnames any more!) took the phone reservation. The hotel would like to know the time of arrival. We don't have a car, so meeting you at the airport is tricky (apart from which, I notice it's a work-day). A taxi from the airport costs USD15-USD17, or there is an airport bus at USD4 a head, which will leave you near the hotel.
My phone numbers: home (212 area code) 758 6523, office - 567 2269 (area code 401 from outside New York). Let me know, what time you are coming in. If it's not late at night, count on having dinner with us.
Very much looking forward to seeing you.

Have a good holiday, and write me when you have time.

Dear Mr T.,
Having been away from the Institute I have received your letter with some delay. I am indeed very sorry that you cannot stay longer in M. since it would be both a privilege and a pleasure to entertain you here and to convey you by car to places of interest. As it is, I am not coming back to M. until you have left, which I greatly regret.
In case you have not made your arrangements yet, and would care to see some people or visit some institutions as I gather from your letter, I suggest you should approach Dr K., who I am sure will be delighted to meet you and who may have much in common with you (being engaged in the research into ...). I have not tried to make any definite arrangements myself, since I do not know what engagements you already have in M. and how much you are committed to the Conference. I trust Dr K. will do his best to be helpful. I have written to him about your visit to M.
I do hope that you will enjoy your stay in this country.
With my best wishes,
Yours sincerely

Letter +101.
Dear Dr T.,

Would you have other plans for the weekend in question, let us know and we should try and make arrangements that would suit you better.
We hope you will have a very good journey and look forward to seeing you in M.

Dear Bob,
I'm just writing to let you know our address and to invite you to our house-warming party next Saturday. I'm sorry about the lack of warning, but we've been busy moving house and I've had little time for anything else. In any case we only decided to hold the party last week when we found out that the cost of moving was not as high as had reckoned and that we had a little cash to spare.
We moved in here two days ago we've been working non-stop ever since. This evening we decided to have a few hours rest, so I'm writing a few invitations to some friends. You can do the trip from Oxford to Portsmouth in two hours now the motoring is open. Harpole is rather difficult to find though, because it's a new housing estate and few people know where it is. Give us a ring when you are in the area, and I'll give detailed directions to you then.
Barbara and I hope You can make it in spite of the short notice.
All the best,
P.S. We can fix you up with a place to sleep. I imagine you can put up which a mattress on the floor!
