    Default as written

    I need your expertise to enlighten me the following sentences:

    As I have written/ mentioned, there is nothing to add. Can I write " as written/mentioned" instead of " as I have written." I mean without "I and have"

    If not, why?

    And when is this pattern used because I've seen writng this pattern.

    And what does " To whom it may concern" really mean?

    Thank a lot. Thank.....

    When you use "I" that which was written was written by you. When you skip "I" it just refers to the item having been written or mentioned -- usually by a third party.

    And what does " To whom it may concern" really mean?

    It means that the letter/memo has been written to anyone who has an interest in the writing. We use it when we do not know a specific person or title to write to. :wink:
