Making an Appointment with a Secretary
MR. PETROV: Hello. May I speak to Mr. Ward, please?
MR. WARD: Speaking. Who is it, please?
MR. PETROV: Good morning, Mr. Ward. This is Petrov, Mr. Gromov's assistant. Mr. Gromov had to fly to Chicago on urgent business last night. He could not see you personally and so he asked me to get in touch with you instead and settle the matter you discussed.
MR. WARD: Sure, Mr. Petrov. I'll tell you what. Could you come over to my office, say, about 4 o'clock?
MR. PETROV: Yes, that's fine for me, Mr. Ward. I'll be there.
MR. WARD: O.K. I'll be expecting you. And I can give you a ride afterwards.
MR. PETROV: Most kind of you. Thank you.
