Unit 14 吊唁篇
We have just learned from all the national media reports that your town suffered from a heavy loss in the flood.
We felt very sorry. Nevertheless, I was most relieved to learn that none of your family members suffered from serious injury. We just want to tell you that all of us here will be delighted to give you our supporting hands and will always be ready for that.
If you need some help from us, please feel free to call us.
We are sending a check of $4000 by airmail.
Thanks a lot for your considerate regarding. Since we have made sound preparations before the flood, we have constructed a cofferdam, our town did not suffer as heavily as have been reported on the TV programs. We have to face such a rainy season this time each year, so most villagers are well aware of the damages it may cause. As a result, we make early and sound preparations to avoid such damages. And we did it this time. Anyway, thanks for your kindness again!
Thank you very much for your generous donations. Though the flood was serious, we did not suffer heavy damages this time. Before the flood, the local broadcasting has foretold the weather. And most of the residents have moved to safer places beforehand. Only some old folks suffered a bit because they refuse to leave the flood-stricken area. Anyway, we managed to save them and have them moved to a nearby hotel in the upper land before the collapse of their houses. So, please feel rest assured that your donation will be of some help for them.
