Sir, I beg to inform you that I had been a student of your school for a long time and that I have passed the Secondary Examination in the First Division this year from your school. Unfortunately my father having died recently, I am unable to continue my studies.
I am, therefore, compelled to look for some employment. I understand I shall require a testimonial as regards my moral character and my knowledge of English. I, therefore, most humbly pray to you to you kind enough to grant me a testimonial.
