    Re: report

    Longer and more helpful titles would be good, Ju - such as Please sign this slip.

    They are all polite; 'Please' ensures that.

    1 needs 'the attached' instead of 'this'.

    In 2, 'of' is missing before 'the receipt'.

    In 3, omit 'the' before 'receipt'.

    c. Should I say 'Please sign the attached slip'? Yes; 'sign on' is wrong.

    Call it a note.
