Exercise I & II
6 June, 2005
Dear Mary and John,
We have just moved to a suburban district in southwestern Shanghai. Now that everything is more or less orderly again, we are going to have a house-warming party this coming Saturday afternoon, 11 June.
We want you to see for yourself that living in the country is not so terrible after all, what with the fresh air, clear sky and, above all, the subway that can take us to the city proper almost in no time.
We will have a good time on Saturday, we are sure. Many old friends are coming, too. Give us a ring to say that you are coming.
Jill and Jack
