Dear Scott,

I am writing to you with regard to your long awaited arrival in London next week. Unfortunately, I will not be able to collect you from the airport at the agreed-upon time.

I regret that I will be unable to make it to the airport in time due to unforeseen circumstances arising with my job. However, I hope you find comfort in the fact that I will not be more than thirty minutes late and will fetch you as hastily as I can. In case you have trouble recognizing me when I come to fetch you; I am a bespecled man with short, brunette hair and six foot tall with a lean build. I will most likely be wearing my customary workplace uniform; a navy blue jersey paired with khaki pants and black dress shoes. I trust you will have no trouble locating me, as I will be holding a sign with your name on it.

I truly apologize for the unceremonious delay and hope it does not inconvenience you too much. I look forward to finally meeting you.

Kind regards,
