Dear Mr. Simpson

I am writing concerning the post of English Teacher that I am due to start next Tuesady. However a problem has arisen.

As you know, I am cxurrently working for my uncle's retail business, and you will remember from my interview that I have gained vallueable work experience there. Unfortunately he has had to go to hospital for an operation, leaving my aunt in charge of both the home and business. She has asked me, as this is a particularly busy time of year, to stay on and help her with the running of this office.

I realize this will be inconvenient to you, but very much hope that, given the circumstances, you would be prepared to allow me to take up my position with you two weeks later than planned.
I would like to emphasize that I remain very keen to work with you, and that I will be gaining further useful experience during this time.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Bob Wilmer
