Dear Uncle John,
Please accept my apologies for not being able to arrange for the amount of money you required for the repair work that is going on at your place. I am feeling very embarrassed as this is the first time that you have asked me for such a help and I am not able to make any arrangement for you.
As you are aware that last month Chris got admission in the Xyz University and we had to deposit a huge amount of money for his course. The two fixed deposits we had were spent for his education and now we are not in a condition to manage the sum requested by you. I really want to help you in this hour of need and would request you to accept the small amount I have managed for you.
I apologize once again for my inability to help you with the entire amount. I hope you will understand my condition.
