Testing for human kindness

Dear occupier,

Recently I sent my friend who used to live at your address a present for her baby, only to realise too late she has moved. I wonder if you would be so good as to look for the parcel, and if it’s still in the hallway there,  send it back to me at the above address? I am enclosing some money for the postage in case you do find it. (I enclosed £5 in Scottish sterling. I presume that'll work in London?)

I’d be so grateful and pleased to get it back so the baby could have his present! You’d really be doing me a great kindness.

Thank you in any case, and sorry for any inconvenience.



(We'll see if it does the trick. If it doesn't I am giving up on the human race altogether! (Throws hands dramatically heavenward).)
