An Actual Letter and its Actual Response

My Letter.(Things have been bolded for emphasis)

Dear McSweeney's:

I've written a few times now to ask if I could please have issue 11 sent to me. I signed up around May of last year, received issue ten, and just a few weeks ago received and am enjoying issue 12. I have still not received issue eleven. I would really really really like to receive it.
I have gotten responses to my letters and everyone has been very polite and friendly and understanding but no one has sent me issue eleven. I enjoy your publication and am sorry to be a bother by continually writing letters of complaint but if someone could send me issue eleven I would really really appreciate it.
If there is any information needed from me, please let me know.

Yours truly,

Raquel D'Apice

Raquel,

I believe I have sent the warehouse an order for your issue 12. I’ll look through my file and get them to send it out. I’m sorry this is taking so long.
