1. Write a letter to your friend about your favourite hobby.
My dear Sushanta,
Your letter is an object of joy for me. Many thanks for it. You desire me to let you know if I have any hobby and if so, what it is. Well I have a hobby and it is stamp-collecting. I can’t tell you exactly how I came to develop. The first inspiration came from my youngest maternal uncle. He is a much-travelled man. He had travelled extensively in different ,countries in his official capacity. He had a good stock of stamps of different countries of the world. I have got good many stamps from him. I have affixed them in my album. Whenever I get a new stamp, I collect it and treasure it up in my album of stamps. My brothers and sisters think it queer. But to me, they are very valuable. These stamps tell me a lot about different countries of the world. They are a source of interest and joy to me.
When we meet next, I shall show you my album. I am sure you will like it. No more today. I am quite all right. How are you? With all my love and best wishes.
Your loving friend,
Sri Sushanta Kar C/o. Prof. S.C. Kar,

5. Write a letter to your friend describing your favourite author.
My dear Badal,
Your leter is just to hand. You have asked me to let you know about my favourite author. I am jotting down a few lines about the author I like best.
Of all the authors, I still consider Sarat Chandra, the Dickens of Bengal, as my favourite author. I love him simply because he has written in a very appealing and vivid way on the lives and problems of the common man of Bengal. No other writer has discussed the social problems so Sincerely. His style of writing is homely and touches the human heart. He was a true patriot who responded to the call of Deshabandhu Chittaranjan. His Sabyasachi, hero of the novel Pather Dabi is an ideal Character of a true revolutionary. He discussed various problems of our society in a very realistic manner to inspire the oppressed and the downtrodden people to revolt against the existing sys stem the society which was under the full control of the Landlores and the conservative Brahmins. His woman characters are fine pictures of reality. Indeed, Sarat Chandra was a great social reformer. So I consider him as my favourite author.
No more today. I am pulling on well. How are you ? With my love and best wishes.

Do not misunderstand me for my silence for about a month. I could not write to you as our H.S.L.C. Test Examination was going on. As the examination is over, I 1ake this earliest opportunity to write to you. Many many thanks to you for lending me your English Grammar book. The book reached me well time made good use of this book. It has helped me much in my English Second Paper. You know well that our English Grammar book which has been prescribed for us by the Education Board and published by the Text I is brief and fragmentary. Besides, it does not deal with all the topics. It also leaves English composition out of its ambit. But your book is really a boon for me. It deals with the entire English Second Paper-Grammar, Translation and Composition. As the book is not available in our locality please procure a copy for me and send it by post. I am sending back your book by Registered Post.

My dear Swapan,
I have not received any letter Irom you lor more than a month or so. What’s the matter with you ? I consider you as my bosom Iriend. So your long silence pains me very much. Are you ill ? Perhaps you can’t realise my warm feelings for you. May I expect a few lines from you by return of post ? I am very much anxious for you and a reply to my letter will relieve my anxiety.
With love and best wishes.
My dear Kamal,
Your letter is just to hand. I am extremely glad at the friendly feelings you have for me. I am really to blame for my long silence. But that was not intentional at all. If you come to know the cause of my silence, I am sure, you won’t accuse me thus. I had been to Howli near Barpeta to see my uncle who fell seriously ill. I was there for over a fortnight. So I could not write to you. As you consider me your bosom friend, you should not take me amiss for this silence. There is no scope of misunderstanding between you and me. However, I promise to compensate my silence by writing to you at least once a fortnight.
More when we meet. I am quite all right. How are you ?
With love and best wishes.

I am anxious to know how you have done in the examination. 1 am sure that you will come out successful, still I shall not get over my anxiety until you write to me that you have done well in all the subjects and papers. So please reply as early as possible. Also let me know all about your experience in the examination hall.
Trust you are keeping good health.
My dear Tapash,
Many, many thanks for your loving letter of the 22nd instant. Our examination was over day before yesterday. To satisfy your curiosity, I am writing how I did in the examination. Some of the papers were stiff and difficult, but I am glad to inform you that I did fairly good in all the papers. I hope to secure a good figure in the examination.
You want to know about my experience in the examination hall. Well, here it is. On the first day, I entered the hall and sat in my allotted seat well before time. I was waiting with a feeling of fear and nervousness. As the question paper was handed over to me, I quickly glanced over it. My hands were trembling, so to say. It seemed to me that I could not answer a single question. But soon I got over this feeling of nervousness. I found that I could answer most of the questions. I am glad to tell you that I did good. I had no fecling of nervousness on the other days.
No more today. How are you? I am pulling on well. Convey my best regards to your father and mother, and love to your brother and sister.
With best of love and good wishes.
Your loving friend,
12. Read the following letter and write a reply to it.
I sent you a telegram wishing your success in the examination. Did you get it? I am sure you are gOing to do very well. It will be my turn to appear in the same examination next year. But I am afraid, I won’t be able to face it with confidence. Somebody should help me with a bit of advice and I think you are the right person for it.
Please tell me how you prepared for the examination. How nany hours a day did you study ? Did you get ume tor games and other amusements ? Many students work too hard and do not care for any recreation or physical exercise. Don’t you think it is bad for health? Which subject did you find difficult ? Were you nervous before the examination
Please write to me as soon as your examination is Over. Give your parents my loving regards.
My dear Kamal,
Very glad to receive your telegram wishing my success in the cxaminatíon. Thank you for your good wishes.
My examination is stil on. I hopeIshall be able to do tolerably in all the subjects and papers. You have wanted my advice but what can I tell you? One thing that I can say is that regularity is the golden key that opens the door of success. Reading by fits and starts will not help you. Read regularly four or five hours a day. I used to read two hours in the morning and two hours in the evening regularly and I felt no need to go late hours even on the days of the examination. I find some of my friends toiling much, they even don’t find any time tor recreation or play. This is certainly bad for health. It tells n our health. So, please try to have some kind of recreation. This will give you fresh energy and enthusiasm. Have some exercise every mo- rning. General Mathematics was the most dreaded subject for me but by constant practice I have overcome the difficulty.
