BEST REGARDS, DR. OBI PATRICK.
Following on the 'Obi' theme I went to Juan (as in Obi Juan Kanobe) and then Juanita as my respondent. To add variety I added a link to Lord Vader as well.
Dear Dr Patrick,
RE: REQUEST FOR A BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP.
I read your letter with some considerable interest. but I am a little confused about whether we really are the right company to help you.
Oakbridge Estate is an old established Courgette stud.
My husband, Lord Vader, is the fifth of a long line of Vaders that has been breeding pedigree Courgettes for the elite racing families of Australia.
While most of our stock end up in the racing arena, a considerable number are sold for their fur, a much prized commodity by the cognoscenti.
Is this the sort of firm that can sensibly be dealing with a petroleum organization? Possibly not.
But, on the other hand, it does sound interesting.
Please advise me as to the viability of this business arrangement as soon as possible.
I remain, yours sincerely,
Lady Juanita Kanobe-Vader.
