I am indeed very sorry that I can't go to Beijing with you next week , which I have promised .I feel sorry for about it and want you to know what happened .
Just now ,my cousin , Li Qiong , who left home to Australia for his further study last year , informed me that he would return this Saturday morning and asked me to pick him up at the airport with his family . You know , we haven't seen each other for nearly a year .
I sincerely hope you can accept my apologies and understand me . I would appreciate your allowing me to make another date to show you around Beijing .Once again ,I'm sorry for any inconvenience caused .
