Dear Mr. English:
The first paragraph of a typical business letter is used to state the main point of the letter. Begin
with a friendly opening; then quickly transition into the purpose of your letter. Use a couple of
sentences to explain the purpose, but do not go in to detail until the next paragraph.
Beginning with the second paragraph, state the supporting details to justify your purpose. These
may take the form of background information, statistics or first-hand accounts. A few short
paragraphs within the body of the letter should be enough to support your reasoning.
Finally, in the closing paragraph, briefly restate your purpose and why it is important. If the
purpose of your letter is related to your employment, consider ending your letter with your
contact information and title if it not included on letterhead. However, if the purpose is
informational, think about closing with gratitude for the reader’s time.
Sincerely,
<SIGNATURE GOES HERE>
