Dear Mr Lewin, This is Mark, one of the residents of Sullivan square. I'm writing to you to ask for help, in finding the owner of the lost gold chain I found in our society yesterday. I found this necklace yesterday around 6:00 pm, while I was taking my dog for an evening walk. Although there was no one in the dog park, the chain was fallen outside the entrance gate. As I'm a goldsmith, I can say, the gold chain seems like it is designed for women, it has attached pendant of an Indian god 'Shiva' and two emerald stones on each side of the locket. In fact, it might worth $3000. As the jewellery is expensive, I want to make an effort to look for the owner and return their belonging. Therefore, I request the management to notify the inhabitants of Sullivan Square about the chain via email or newsletter and help me in finding the proprietor. I would appreciate all your support. Kind Regards, Mark
