I very much regret that I am unable to accept your kind invitation to a Reception to be held in Hotel Ritz at seven oТclock on Friday, the tenth of March, 2000, as I have already accepted a previous invitation for that date and time.
Dear Dr. Truman
I am very thankful to you for your kind invitation to dinner on Thursday the 18th August at 8 p.m., but I am very sorry I must decline it as I do not feel quite well.
