    proofreading once more

    Hello,

    could you please proofread also the following sentences:

    1) I am not able to help you now, although I would like to very much.

    2) I promise that I will continue to look for further possibilities to help you already now, at least partially. (I am not sure about "already now" refering to the fact that he would like to help him now when he nees it)

    Thank you very much.

    Hanka

    1 Ok
    2 I don't like 'already now'. When are you going to help?

    I think that he wants to help his friend within several days and not months or years. So he says "now".

    Maybe I could drop "already" and say "I will continue to look for other possibilities to help you now, at least partially.

    It should probably mean as soon as possible.

    I will continue to look for other ways to help you, at least in part, as soon as I can
