Request For Extension Of Payment Due

Dear Sir or Madam:


We have a very uncomfortable request - we are asking for an extension of time

on our bill for ________ (amount).  We had been depending on a check from one of our clients to cover this bill. However, we have just been informed that this check will not arrive until _______ (date).

Therefore, we must ask for your indulgence and grant us a two weeks' extension of time on our bill.  We are sorry about any inconvenience this may bring to you.
