Dear Mr. Lin,
Thank you for your invitation. I shall be very delighted to attend your opening ceremony on Monday morning, May 16th. I know it is your long-cherished wish to have a company of your own and you have finally made it come true. This is due to your outstanding wisdom, your superior judgment and great efforts for so long a time. I felt so happy when I heard the news. Congratulations! And of course, I will be there on this exciting event.
I will arrive at your company at about 8:00 a.m. that day and send my congratulations and best wishes in person. I am looking forward to witnessing the establishment of your company and your new career.
I received your letter on Mar. 25 and I am happy that you can be here to accompany us at our opening ceremony. It will be a great honor to have your presence on the event.
We have arranged a feast after the ceremony and you have the opportunity to taste genuine Hubei food. A visit to our new company will be followed after the feast before your trip back to Shanghai. And my secretary will drive you to the airport. By the way, we will pay the air tickets for your round trip. I hope you will like our arrangements.
It is really a great honor to have your presence at our opening ceremony. And thank you for your congratulations and compliments. You are right when you say this is a dream of my life and I have been working hard to make it come true. In this sense, I wish to share my happiness with my friends who have given me unselfish help during the process. You encouraged and supported me whenever I had problems. I express my heartfelt gratitude for your kindness and wish to have the opportunity to give it in return.
Looking forward to meeting you!
