    Grammar

    I want to know whether it is correct or not.

    Dear friend I have not yet received your education certificate from your institution. They promise me to give it to me tomorrow morning . I sent a text message to inform you about it but I think you did not read my message. I will also inform you when I have received it.

    Hi Meela, I suggest a couple of changes.

    Dear friend, I have not yet received your education certificate. Your institution indicated that I would recieve the certificate by [enter the date]. I sent a text message to this effect, but I'm not sure if you recieved it. When the certificate arrives, I will inform you of its arrival.

    Didyou want the recipient to contact their institution? Is there an implicit request for the recipient to do something about this problem? If so, consider letting them know what you need from them. Also, consider using their actual name, rather than friend.

    I hope this is helpful.
