Dear Receiver,

This is a basic letter in block format.  When writing letters you need to use complete sentences, correct spelling, and proper punctuation. Put one space between each word and do not use enter on the keyboard until you get to the end of the paragraph.

The first paragraph in a letter should explain who you are and why you are writing.  In the second paragraph you will give details as to the content and purpose of the letter.  In the third paragraph you will restate the purpose in the first paragraph, and thank the reader for their time.

Use only proper english in written communication.  Abbreviations, text-language, and emicolons make a poor impression on your letter readers.  Written communication makes a lasting impression on the reader.

Thank you for your time,

Mr. Michaud
