Letters of Thanks
If you have received the hospitality of a friend, for a weekend or longer, courtesy requires you write a note of thanks within two or three days after your return home. The fact that you soon and enthusiastically thanked your hostess before leaving does not count. You must express your appreciation in writing. This is a so-called “duty” note which is expected of you (which you must write). It has become known as a “bread-and-butter” letter because it thanks hostess for the hospitality she has provided.
Here is an example:
|Dear Mrs. Novak, I’d like you to know how much the week-end at your lovely house in Southampton has meant to me. I not only enjoyed myself immensely, but I feel relaxed and refreshed as I have not it in months. Many thanks to you and Mr. Novak for asking me. Sincerely, Ivan Brovko|
Letters of Congratulation
Letters of congratulation should be cheerful messages. They may be brief and formal, or they may be chatty and informal-depending on the circumstances. It may be congratulation on winning an honour or distinction, etc.
|Dear Mr. Walley, My warm congratulations to you on your election as President of the State Medical Association. It is a fine tribute from your colleagues, and a reward you richly deserve for your many years of splendid service to the profession and to the people of the state. My very best wishes to you. Sincerely yours, Ivan Brovko.|
