Making a Telephone Call
Clerk：Good morning. Wilson Association。
Brown：This is Mr. Brown speaking. I’d like to speak to Mr. Thomas。
Clerk：I’m sorry, but Mr. Thomas left here just a few minutes ago。
Brown：I’ve been trying to call him for the last ten minutes, but your line was busy. Will he be back soon?
Clerk：I’m afraid not. He is away for the
rest of the day。
Brown：Is there other way I can reach him?
Clerk：I’m afraid not. He has gone out of this town on business. May I take a message?
Brown：I have a business appointment with him at 10 o’clock tomorrow morning, but I’m afraid I can’t make it。
Clerk：Would you like to make another appointment?
Brown：Unfortunately, I’m leaving here unexpectedly, and I may be away for several days。
Clerk：I see. I’ll tell Mr. Thomas that you’ve called。
