Dear Sir.

I am writing to you because I left a (leather/large/brown) suitcase on the 7.45 train to London yesterday. In the suitcase there is a (plastic/digital/little) alarm clock and a pair of (silk/ black/expensive) pyjamas. There is also a (lovely/satin/long) dress, which is a present for my wife, and a (Chinese/ beautiful/gold) chain which I would hate to lose. Finally, there is a (black/leather/plastic) folder containing confi­dential government papers, so it is very important that my suitcase is found and returned to me as soon as possible.

Yours faithfully, Paul Daniels
