Dear [Recipients Name],

Marlow and I were happy to receive an invitation to your home BBQ. We accept of course and anticipate the event with much delight. I have managed to lose the letter, careless of me, but to my recall, the event will be held on Friday night, 5.30pm on the 13th of March. Let me know if I have made a mistake; otherwise, I look forward to a lovely evening you all of you very soon.
