  • heading 311 East College Street Stanley, N.C. 28164 August 15, 2004 greetingDear Phil, How has your summer been? Not too hot I hope. Did you get to visit your grandparents? Did you go on your trip to Toronto as you had hoped? They say Toronto is a beautiful city. This is my second season at Camp Bellaire. I just passed my swimming test. Now I can swim out to the raft and also use the boats. To pass I had to jump into the water with my clothes on (as if I had just fallen out of a boat). Then I had to take them off down to my trunks, even my shoes and socks, and finally swim back to shore. It was tough, but I did it! I’m looking forward to seeing you soon. There is lots of news to catch up on! body Your friend, Mike closing signature

  • LETTERS OF NEWSPAPER A written report and analysis of the news, often providing forecasts, typically directed at a special audience, as business people, and mailed to subscribers: a stock-market newsletter.
  • Perera No. 2, 1st Lane, ABC Aug 21, 2013 To, The Editor, The Indian Express, ABC-62. Dear Sir, With due respect, I wish to draw kind attention of the concerned authority and general public through your esteemed daily, towards increasing incidents of road accidents. Road accidents are a frequent feature of newspapers. Road accidents are on a rise especially in big cities. Persons sitting on steering do not have control over it. They do not have any regard for the traffic rules. Over-speeding, jumping red lights, overtaking from wrong side are common place. In most of the cases they escape unpunished due to their social status and corrupt bureaucracy. Every year, large numbers of people die in road accidents. It is one of the biggest reasons of unnatural deaths in India. In the past fifty years, more persons succumbed to death due to road accidents than in wars with our enemy countries. So the time has come to develop a movement against reckless driving. I hope, civic authorities and civilized people will pay heed to my prayer. Yours faithfully, XYZ
