You borrowed a book from a public library and the book is now damaged. v. 1

Dear Sir or Madam, Two weeks ago I borrowed a book from your library. I was excited to have read the book but very disappointed to recently find that it was damaged. I am hoping you will allow me to purchase a new book of the same title as compensation. In relation to the specifics of the book, I borrowed 'Nineteen Eighty-Four' a novel by George Orwell, on 17th July from your library using my library card BM-450124. I have been thoroughly enjoying the book and almost finished it until it got damaged. Unfortunately, On 25th July, three days before the due date to return the novel, I found that it was ruined due to the pouring rain that somehow reached my table placed near the window. I put the book on the table and had been outside the whole time it rained. All of the books on the table absorbed rainwater and the book I borrowed from the library is now unreadable due to the damage the water caused to it. As a solution, and because I really want to express my apology for the incident, I seek your permission to purchase a new book with the same title for the library. I am also hoping that you would not impose any penalty for the incident. Thank you in advance and I hope to hear your reply soon. Yours faithfully, Erica Jong

IELTS letter You borrowed a book from a public library and the book is now damaged. v.1

Dear Sir or Madam,

Two weeks ago I borrowed a
book
from your library. I
was excited
to have read the
book
but
very
disappointed to recently find that it
was damaged
. I am hoping you will
allow
me to
purchase
a new
book
of the same title as compensation.

In relation to the specifics of the
book
, I borrowed 'Nineteen Eighty-Four' a novel by George Orwell, on 17th July from your library using my library card BM-450124. I have been
thoroughly
enjoying the
book
and almost finished it until it
got
damaged.

Unfortunately, On 25th July, three days
before
the due date to return the novel, I found that it
was ruined
due to the pouring rain that somehow reached my table placed near the window. I put the
book
on the table and had been outside the whole time it rained.
All of the
books
on the table absorbed rainwater and the
book
I borrowed from the library is
now
unreadable due to the damage the water caused to it.

As a solution, and
because
I
really
want to express my apology for the incident, I seek your permission to
purchase
a new
book
with the same title for the library. I am
also
hoping that you would not impose any penalty for the incident.

Thank you in advance and I hope to hear your reply
soon
.

Yours
faithfully
,
