I am writing to express my sincere thanks for your beautiful flowers. I would like you to know how much your flowers meant to me. You have a positive genius for selecting the right gift. I not only enjoyed your flowers, but also the delicate vase. I shall ever remember this gift as one of the most precious things in my life.
I will not be very busy the following days. I hope to have the opportunity of reciprocating. Would you kindly let me know what time you are at convenience?
I will feel very happy if you have time to make me a call. How nice it would be to see you again and I am looking forward to seeing you next time!
I repeat my thanks again for your lovely flowers. Please give my kind regards to your family.
Thank you very much for the nice birthday present you have sent me! I have been longing for a dictionary for a long time. It will surly be very helpful to my study.
It's very nice of you to remember my birthday, I'll make good use of the dictionary and I'll think of you with gratitude and affection every time I use it.
Thanks for Liu's Hospitality

Dear Liu Dong,
I'm back at school now. I wish to express my thanks to you for the wonderful vacation I spent with you and your family. During the vacation you taught me how to swim, boat and fish. I really appreciate① your taking time off work to take② me around and show me so many places.
Your mother is such a terrific③ cook! I think I must have gained 10 pounds just in the week I spent with you. Surely I've spent a happy vacation, which will be remembered for long.
I hope you will be able to visit our school sometime. Thank you again. Let's keep in touch.
