    Re: Take leave of

    You can say any of the following:
    "He took leave of me", "Tom took leave of his friends", "Tom took leave of his organisation" - though you might mean "Tom took leave from his organisation" if you mean he took a vacation.

    Re: Take leave of

    OK if we say "He took leave of his organisation" so it means "He left it" or if we say "He took leave from organisation" so it means he went on vacations. What if we say "He took leave from his friends"?
