  举例:Dear Editor, I’d like to tell you something about the trouble I was facing in buying furniture. The other day I ordered a set of furniture at a furniture exhibition. They sent me the furniture after four weeks.But I found the color and the size of some pieces were not what I had ordered. What’s more, one leg of the desk was broken. So I asked them to take back the furniture and give me back the money, but they refused. I wrote to the director of the factory but there was no answer. I hope you will publish my letter in the newspaper and help me solve the problem.

  Yours sincerely, Li Gang
