I beg to apply for one’s week’s leave of absence from the 1st to 7th instant, both days inclusive, in order to return home to see my grandfather, who is now serious ill. To support my application, I herewith submit the telegram received from my father last night.
A telegram has just come to hand saying that my mother is serious ill and urging me to go home at once. Because of this I should very much like to have a leave of three days beginning on Oct. 8. I hope that my request will be given due consideration.
Encl: a telegram from my home
To: John Smith, Supervisor
From: George Chen, Accounting Department

Subject: Casual Leave of Absence
John, I would like to know if I could ask for a casual leave of absence from March 23 to 27.
Yesterday I received a letter from my parents, who are both over 70, telling me that a big flood took place at my home village, causing serious damage to my house. As the only son of my parents, I should of back to assess the situation, and help them to get over these difficulties. Though I cannot stay at home for too long a time, I should at least make arrangements for repair work. I believe my relatives in the village and my neighbors will also come to help. Financially I have no difficulties.
I will call you at 1:30p.m. or you can call me at any time.
Dear Mr Chen,
I'm sorry to tell you that I can't go to school today. I've caught a cold because I swam in the Kunming Lake yesterday.[转
This morning I had a headache. After taking my temperature, my mother found that I had a high fever. She took me to see a doctor. The doctor advised me to stay in bed for two days.
Now I'm writing to you to ask for two days' sick leave.
Yours respectfully,( englishtang.com )
