    letter asking for a invitation

    Dear all,

    I need to send an e-mail asking for an invitation letter, and I don't know if the person whom I'm sending it, knows about me because the first time I contacted, I did it directly through my tutor, so I would need to introduce me at first, and then ask the request. Could anyone of you, please, check my letter??
    Thank you.


    Dear XXXX XXXX,


    I'm XXXX XXXX, a Ph.D. student of Dr. XXXX XXXX, who a couple of months ago e-mailed with Dr. XXXX XXX, asking for a research stay in your institution (from 1th June to 31th September) and he was kind enough accepting my application.


    Now, my university is requesting me an invitation letter for the period I mentioned above. I would really appreciate if you could send me an invitation letter and If you need any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.


    Once again, I would like to thank you all for giving me this opportunity.


    Yours faithfully,

    Why are you pretending to send an email?

    Dear XXXX XXXX,

    I'm My name is AAAA AAAA and I'm studying a for my Ph.D. student in [subject] of with Dr. XXXX XXXX. who A couple of months ago, I e-mailed with Dr. YYYY YYYY, asking for a research stay position in your institution (from 1th 1st June to 31th 30th September) and he was kind enough accepting to accept my application.


    Now, My university is requesting me has requested an a formal invitation letter for the period I mentioned above. I would really appreciate it if you could send me an invitation letter. and

    If you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Once again, I would like to thank you all for giving me this opportunity and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Yours faithfully sincerely,


    See my suggested changes above.

    I would probably try to give them the exact date that you emailed the first time, and include a copy of the email you received from Dr YYYY YYYY offering you the research position. Ideally, I would "cc" Dr YYYY YYYY into this email or email him direct asking him to arrange the invitation letter.

    Note that we don't use "th" after all numbers to create ordinal numbers. After a "1", use "st". After a "2", use "nd", after a "3", use "rd". After that you can use "th". Note that there are only 30 days in September so he can't have offered you a position ending on 31 September.

    1st
    2nd
    3rd
    4th
    5th


    If you start a letter with "Dear Sir/Madam", end with "Yours faithfully". If you start a letter with "Dear Mr/Mrs/Miss/Ms + Surname", end with "Yours sincerely".
