Subject: Letter requesting leave of absence due to unforeseen illness  today Thursday, March 7, 2012

Dear Sir,

Please accept this letter of explanation and also requisition for leave of absence owing to unforeseen illness today, Thursday, March 7, 2012. I had a stomach flu and migraine head ache which I had not anticipated at all. I felt very ill and couldn’t attend the office today. After consulting with the pharmacist this evening and taking medication, I feel much better now and hope to feel alright by tomorrow morning.

I am sorry I couldn’t send you a written notification and letting you know earlier. Please do excuse my absence and grant me leave today, the March 7, 2012. Please let me know if you need any more information regarding this.

Thanking you for understanding.

Sincerely yours,
Shareek Rehman
