Dear XYZ,

I hope you and your family are keeping well. It has been long that I met you and now due to this pandemic situation it’s almost impossible. But don’t worry we are also keeping well. Due to this situation, I want to suggest you something. As your board exam is coming next year and now you have only one study option that is online classes. As i came to know that you have a Library near your house and it will reopen soon. So it’s my request to you to visit the library frequently. It will help you to read more number of books. It will help you gain more knowledge . Continue your online classes and also continue visiting the library and collecting more books. Also you can increase your general knowledge by reading g.k books. Hope you will listen my advice and send me a letter soon.

Hope to meet u soon and also feel free to ask anything you want for your preparation. Keep well and stay safe.

Yours loving,
