Dear [Recipients Name],

This letter is a letter attesting to the breach of contract made by the party of Mr. Dennis M. McRyans.

In our original contract, it was stated that he would be paying his balance on or before March 1, 2009. As per March 15, 2009, the said balance has yet to be settled.

Here is our offer regarding the said breach of contract:

(list down all of the things which you may require, most especially a sort of compromise or final deadline. i.e. He should pay off the balance not later than March 30 or something like that)

We hope that this matter can be settled amicably without the involvement of any authorities.
