I am new here. Thank you at first for your coming and taking look at my question.
My friend recently wants to mail something to her family (from U.S to another country), but she was worried whether the content of the package was prohibited. Therefore, she asked me to write the following letter to customs.
I am not sure I am writing it right, especially in grammar. Could anyone of you please view it and give me some comments?
Thank you a lot!
My name is XXXXX. I am writing this letter to you regarding to a certified mail labeled with No: 7004 2890 0003 2902. This package contains 1.75 pounds of cultivated ginseng root, 0.5 pounds of sliced cultivated ginseng and 4 small packs of gum. There is a Cultivated Ginseng Shipping Certificate attached to this mail made by the company where I purchased them from, proving they are not wild ginseng. As well as what I have heard from the post officer, cultivated ginsengs are allowed for shipping.
This package is also a fatherís day gift for my dad, and the 4 packs of gum is a small gift for my 4-year-old nephew who asked for them when last time we talked on phone.
Considering the reasons above, I mailed this gift and really hoped it would be successfully delivered to my family, making my nephew happy and my dad a wonderful fatherís day.
The gift itself costs me $250.00 and $50.51 for shipping, which means a lot of money for me. If they were unfortunately prohibited from shipping, I hope they could be send back to me instead of being destroyed. Your understanding and benevolence will be deeply appreciated by my whole family.
Thank you for your time and considering my request.
