conclusion

Dear Professor David,

I have been living in International House now for the eight months and feel very much at home as it is very comfortable and reasonably priced. , I would like to draw your to the following problems.

First of all, the computer room in the basement has been closed for the last three weeks of a shortage of technical staff. it not be possible to pay computer-science students to the hall's computer room on a rota basis?

Secondly, noise levels from student parties have increased recently. I think it would be a good idea to parties to Friday or Saturday nights and from 8.00 to 12.30 in term time. I am sure you will that it is very hard to study someone is having an all-night party in the middle of the week!

I look forward to from you in the near future.

Yours sincerely,

Patrick Cates
