    Thumbs down it's hard to write a formal letter

    is it correct to write this way?:
    "I won't hide from you the fact that I'm sad that you didn't come to see me.."
    or is it wrong, or strange or whatever???

    Re: it's hard to write a formal letter

    "I won't hide from you the fact that I'm sad that you didn't come to see me.."

    Its not incorrect, but at the same time its a little wordy.

    "I won't hide the fact that I'm sad that you didn't come to see me.."

    Works too, gets the message across and saves you some time

    The "from you" seems a little redundant since it is one person talking to another. So it is easily dropped.
