    Cool thereby

    Hi,

    Is the following sentence correct?

    "I thereby tender my dismissal...."

    Re: thereby

    It's difficult to say whether your sentence is correct because we don't know what "thereby" refers to. But from a purely grammatical perspective, the sentence is correct.

    Re: thereby

    Did you mean to write "I hereby tender my dismissal"?

    Yes, but I let the few points because would complete the sentence later.

    I'm not sure if you understood what Jasmin was asking. Maybe you wanted to write "hereby" instead "thereby"?

    It's something like: "I, 'through' this letter, tender my dismissal...."

    In French: "par la présente,.... "

    I think you're right. Maybe it was "hereby" Good point, Mmasny

    It's actually Jasmin's point.

    Thank you both. But what is more appropriate? "thereby" or "hereby"?

    Hereby means what you wanted to mean.
