Model Answer:

Dear Rajib,

Hope you are doing great. I'm writing to let you know that I have decided to sell some of my furniture. I will move to a new city soon and my new apartment is not big enough to accommodate all of my furniture. I thought you might be interested to buy some of the furniture I have planned to sell.

You know that I've recently been transferred to Rajshahi. It's great news for me because I have wished to live there for a long. However, there's a problem- the new flat is smaller than my current one and I will need to sell some of my furniture. More specifically, I want to sell my dining and sofa set.

Last month, you came to my house on occasion of my younger daughter's birthday. I remember you inquiring about the dining table and the sofa set and I thought you might want to have those. Nevertheless, it's a large dining table including six chairs made of mahogany wood. Besides, the sofa I own is a modern fabric Scandinavian sofa set that was placed in my drawing room. I would rather sell the furniture to someone know that an unknown person and willing to offer a reasonable price.

You can come anytime you want and inspect the furniture. If you feel that the yare perfect for you, you can buy those. Don't worry about the price.

No more today, speak to you soon.

Warm wishes,

Rahim Ali
