    the use of let's

    Would it be correct to use an apostraphy s in this sentence and why?

    She let's me go boating.

    The apostrophe is an error in that sentence.

    Lets is the third-person present of the verb [to] let meaning allow or permit.

    Let's is a contraction of let us.

    If my mother lets (allows) me go, we should go today.

    I'm busy today, let's (let us) go tomorrow.
