Very apologetically.
It seems a daft thing, telling two companies you are accepting their offers. Once you accepted the first offer you ought to have stuck to it.

I suggest that you put yourself in their situation. Then think what to write. Try to make your own words, its better. You will get practice for future letter writing.

Okay, take an example - Dear sir, I thank you for the great interview experience and for giving me the opportunity to work at XXXXX. I would love to be a part of XXXXX,
but due to YYYY reason (make your lie convincing), I cannot work here. I am sorry for the inconvenience that this has caused. I wish that I could have joined.

So long,
Sucker....dont write this one. But fact is, you were not fair to them.

I would just tell them the real reason why you are joining the other company and apologize that you accepted their offer and then decided to switch. There's no point telling it in someone else's words.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
