    capital letter

    It is also known as 'the Farewell Chapter'.

    Hello, should I include 'the' in the quotation marks and should 'the' be capitalised? I think it should be capatilised as it's part of the quotation. Thank you.

    Re: capital letter

    That depends. Do people refer to it (whatever it is) as "The Farewell Chapter" or simply as "Farewell Chapter"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: capital letter

    I'd assume that the OP took your question to be rhetorical.

    Re: capital letter

    Apparently so. It wasn't rhetorical. I assumed "[The] Farewell Chapter" was something the OP was familiar with and would therefore know whether people use "the" as part of the official name or not.
