    Default Please Correct this sentence for a letter

    Friends,

    I am drafting a letter which my boss asked me to.
    While writing down the letter i think i made a mistake.
    Please correct the below sentence.

    "I hope that this letter of mine would feel you in your beet of health and happiness."

    is the above sentence correct? also, the word which is bold is correct or it should be changed to better?

    thanks

    Welcome to the forums, sathyguy.

    II asssume you want to say something along the lines of, "I hope this letter finds you in the best of health". I have to say that this would not be a normal thing to say in a British business letter. It may be fine in your culture.

    thanks for your reply.
    But i cannot change the complete sentence. Because he wants what he says...but without mistake.

    so can you check whether this sentence is correct with the word beet or better?

    "I hope that this letter of mine would feel you in your beet of health and happiness."

    I have already said that the words are 'best', not 'beet' 'find' not 'feel'.
