    Re: agree with/ to

    Thank you. However, I think that "To approve of a particular idea or action" can also fairly refer to "We will agree to your proposal if you will postpone action." I need to be thinking of it a bit more.

    Re: agree with/ to

    Your sentences are close, but the sentence with "to" is more about an action than simple agreement. I also think that both would be just as good (and possibly better) without the second "will".

    I see. The action on whose part do you mean? On the part of the ones agreeing or on the part of those who propose?

    Have no doubt on that. But I was wondering about the name of the source.
