The letter was written on a typewriter that has a problem with the top row of letters – they did not print correctly. The letter should have read:

Dear Kevin,

I would like to complain about the top row of my typewriter.

These letters do not appear to be working correctly.

As you can see, they are missing from this document.

I would be very grateful if you could correct this problem immediately.

Kind regards.

Sam South.
