    I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask for some more context here. Could you please provide the proper punctuation for this sentence? If I read this aloud with no stops, I would almost suredly get confused looks. – Neil Mar 2 '18 at 13:33
  • Do not use the phrase "my madam," it sounds like you're referring to a "madam" in the sense of someone who runs a brothel. Instead, use "madam" as if it was a name: "Today, madam asked me to...." – Canadian Yankee Mar 2 '18 at 16:40

It is idiomatic just to "be late",

Sir, madam has asked me to inform you that she will be about one hour late

If you want to use a verb, then "arrive" is more appropriate than "come". The word "arrive" implies reaching a particular place, whereas "come" is more related to the journey.

Sir, madam sends her apologies, she will be arriving an hour late.
