Sample Answer:

Dear Catharine,

Hi there! Hope you are fine and all your family are doing well. I am also fine despite of busy days here. You would be glad to know that I got an excellent job I dreamt for in Liverpool and am planning to settle down there. Anyway, I’m not going to ship my furniture to the new destination. I kick the fright charges around and in the end decide to sell them off.

However, you were talking about android television you want to buy. That’s why, you can consider my one. It is Sony’s android TV. While Bravia is the cutting edge technology today, android provides a futuristic experience with its searching capabilities and voice. You can control the TV with simply your voice and even search the Internet simply by speaking to the TV. In addition, its 4k display heightens the gaming experience and gives the player a sense of euphoria.

I think you are very interest in the TV I described above. I, however, want you to come and see its condition and functional procedure. I am happy to invite you for this on December 7, 2015. If you choose the TV after seeing it, then we would negotiate on the price.

Hope to see you soon.

Lots of love,
