Write a Letter to him Explaining your Conduct and Offering the Hand of Friendship Again
I regret to convey my feelings that our friendship which had been holding good from time immemorial seems to have ended abruptly.
In fact, in a heat of debate, I completely forgot that debate is an academic exercise and it does not involve anything personal which should not culminate in snapping of childhood ties. When your speech cut my points and you spoke against me, I got offended. It was a blunder on my part to take the whole thing as an insult and lose my temper, while standing on prestige.After deep deliberation, I have come to the conclusion that I should not have made it a prestige issue. As far as your conduct is concerned, it was spontaneous and above board.
I, therefore, apologies to you and extend my hand of friendship again hoping that you will not disappoint me.
Looking forward to a positive reply.
