    Exclamation Help!!!!

    Hi, teachers!

    I need your help on my writing. It's from my letter to my supervisor. I am not sure whether I write in the right way - as polite as possible. And I will be absent in the meeting with him, so I am writing something to explain my absence and not annoying him. The following is from the letter,

    Dear Sir,

    I will have a meeting tomorrow with you on 2:00P.M. But I have had my leg hurt this morning so badly that maybe I couldn't go to the meeting tomorrow. I am very sorry for the absence and for making your time wasted because of my absence. As you know, I have an extension on my dissertation and I will keep in touch with you by e-mail. Can I ask for your suggestion if I meet problems on the writing? And I will send you my literature review as soon as possible.

    Yours sincerely,

    Joe

    Could you please edit the writing for me?

    Thanks a lot!!!

    Joe

    Re: Help!!!!

    Dear Sir,

    I will (delete) have a meeting tomorrow with you on (I'd say 'at') 2:00P.M. But I have had my leg hurt (hurt my leg) this morning so badly that maybe I couldn't (will not be able to) go to the meeting tomorrow. I am very sorry for the absence and for making your time wasted (the inconvenience caused) because of my absence. As you know, I have an extension on my dissertation and I will keep in touch with you by e-mail. Can (could) I ask for your suggestion (=ask you for suggestions) if I meet (have) problems on (with)the writing? And (delete)I will send you my literature review as soon as possible.

    Thanking you in advance, I look forward to hearing from you.

    Yours sincerely,

    Joe

    These are the changes I'd make.
