    Re: won't you please forgive me

    You don't need the help of a native speaker. You need a dictionary. Anyhow, the person has done something that he regrets (and is sorry for) and is asking the other person to please not hold it against him. Example:

    Ron: I didn't mean to hurt your feelings. Would you please forgive me?
    Andrea: I forgive you, Ron. I know you're not like that.

    Re: won't you please forgive me

    In this context, "Won't you please forgive me?" means the same as "Will you please forgive me?" and "Please forgive me".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
