Dear Mr. Smith,
It was a pleasure to receive your letter dated March 12, and to learn that you are making plans for Mr. Brown of your company to visit our company next month. We shall be very happy to welcome him and to do our best to make his visit both enjoyable and successful.
We gather that this will be Mr. Brown's first visit to Shanghai, in which case he will, no doubt, wish to see some of our major places of interest. We can discuss a suitable program when he arrives. If he so wishes we can also introduce him to several firms with whom you may like to do business.
When the date of Mr. Brown's visit is fixed, please let us know the time of his arrival here by fax so that we can arrange to pick him up at the airport. You may be sure he will have a warm welcome.
Dear Mr. Lin,
Thank you for your warmness and kindness to make arrangement for Mr. Brown's visit in next month. You are right that this is his first visit to Shanghai; actually, this is his virgin trip to China. He is now preparing for his journey. I will let you know the date of his arrival and the number of the flight he will take once they are fixed.
Dear Mr. Lin,
Thank you for your letter to extend your warm welcome to Mr. Brown, who asked me to express gratitude on behalf of him. Mr. Brown is looking forward to visiting China; he has been interested in this country, including its scenery and culture. I will inform you of the date of his arrival and the number of the flight he will take the moment they are fixed.
