1. Declining an Invitation:
Dear Mr. S
Thank you very much for your invitation to the dinner party. I would have been honored to be with you and meet our common friends. Unfortunately, my son has been ill for the last four days and my wife is also not here, so I will not able to attend the party as I have to look after him.
Please accept by best wishes on this occasion.
2. Unable to attend the birthday party:
It was very nice of you to have invited me to the birthday function of your son on 3rd January. I wish I could attend this function and enjoy meeting everyone but regret to say that because of an urgent pre-scheduled meeting with a foreign dealer, I shall be out of town on the day.
However, I am sending herewith a gift for Rahul, I think he will like it.
Please convey ‘my birthday wishes’ to Rahul.
