Dear Mr. Masters,

One of our truckers left his black leather jacket in your establishment when he stopped there for a meal yesterday. Another one of our drivers mentioned that he had seen the jacket there later in the day when he also stopped for a bite to eat.

Would you please have a look for the jacket and return it to us, or put it aside so the owner can pick it up on his next run? The jacket has” I Love Denver” embroidered on the back and is size 44.

We have tried several times to contact you by phone but have been unable to get through. Please contact me on the number above to either confirm you have the jacket or if it is not there.

Thank you so much for your help in this matter. The jacket is very special to our driver, Dave Hamilton, as his children gave it to him as a Father’s Day present.
