(Greeting) 
Dear Harry,

Sue and I are going on a trip. We will be gone ten days. We want you to take care of the vegetable garden and the flower garden for us. I will pay you

for the work you do.

The vegetables and flowers will have to be watered every day. They will have to be hoed, too.

If you can do this, let me know.

Sincerely yours,
