    If that's what you want to start with, of course. Did you have doubts about this?

    In the way back when, as I was learning grammar and punctuation I was taught that it was a "no-no" to begin a letter with the pronoun "I". Just trying to confirm what I think I recall as a 'rule'.

    There's nothing wrong with it at all.

    (As your thread is about Beginning a letter with 'I', that would have been a great title.)
