September 6, 2007.
I have just received your letter. I am glad to know that everyone in the family is hale and hearty. Dear father, some of my friends are planning to visit Tarbela Dam the coming weekend. I also intend to accompany them. There are two good reasons for my joining this trip. First, it would give me respite from a very tiring and busy span of studies during the last session. Two days off in the company of friends, and roaming about in open area would be a perfect setting for recreation. Secondly, this trip would be of educational value as well. A cousin of one of our tripmate is an engineer at Tarbela. He has kindly agreed to show us all the important locations of the Dam and explain to us the technical matters. Dear father, though I am very keen to join this trip, I cannot think of going away from the place of studies without your permission. I shall be keenly awaiting your permission for the trip. Convey my regards to mother and Munna. Affectionate regards.
