    formal letter

    I'm at a loss. How is it correct in formal writing:

    I will be grateful for you to accomodate my request.

    or

    I will be grateful to you for accomodating my request.

    I would go for the 1st one, but still, is it spoken language there somewhere?

    Re: formal letter

    Hello bianca!

    I'd go with this:

    I would be grateful if you would accommcodate my request.



    I will be grateful for you to accomodate my request is a bit odd.
