    Email to hand thesis

    Hello,
    i want to write an email asking a committee member whether he wants me to hand in a copy of my thesis in his mailbox or hand it in person.

    i am thinking of writing something like the following and would appreciate your thoughts please.

    ------------------------
    Dear Dr. Peter,

    i have been advised to hand a copy of my thesis entitled "xxxxxxx" to your behalf. Please let me know what will be most convenient to drop it in your mailbox or to hand it in person?

    thank you,
    ----------------------------

    thank you in advance, please provide sample if anyone has been in a similar case.

    Re: Email to hand thesis

    1. Start a sentence with a capital letter.

    2. I wish to submit my thesis titled 'xxx' to you. Shall I drop it in your mailbox or hand it in to you personally?

    3. 'To you', not 'to your behalf'.

    4. You hand in your thesis to somebody, not hand in to a mailbox.

    Note my corrections above.

    Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.

    I don't know what you think "Participate that" means but it means nothing.

    Also, please note that there is no need to write a new post to say "Thank you". Simply click on the "Thank" button at the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful. It saves us all time.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
