Mr Philip Lim Product Manager Red Horse Company Pte Ltd 211, Defu Lane Singapore 031245 Dear Mr Philip Lim, Request for Interview Concerning the Miracle Claims of Red Horse We are students of Secondary One from Raffles Institution. Included in our curriculum is a Research Education (RE) project. This project is compulsory and aims to expose pupils to research methods and lay the foundation for more group research opportunities at the upper level. Under this project, a group of pupils must carry out a project work in four areas: library research, social survey, interview and presentation of scientific data. For the interview component, we would like to look at the Red Horse health tonic and how it attempts to achieve its claims. We would be very grateful if you could assist us in our investigation by granting us an interview at a time convenient to you. We would be calling you in a few days for your reply. 5

Thank you for your kind attention.

Yours sincerely, ---------------------(John Tan) Group Leader
