    Question Query letter

    Dear teachers,

    Does this letter read well?

    Dear ____

    We are writing to inform that a spelling error has been identified at the very first word of the title of the document that was sent last year. We would like to know if, and strongly hope, it is possible to correct that error. Where it reads 'Comunication', it should read 'Communication'. Honestly speaking, we don't know how neither the analysts nor the authors saw that inconvenient lapse.

    Looking forward to your positive response.

    Truthfully yours

    ______

    Hmm- this is strong criticism and might cause annoyance.
