    introduce to or introduce with?

    Which preposition is best suited for the word "introduce"?

    Let me introduce you with my uncle John.
    Let me introduce you to my uncle John.
    I'll introduce you to Marry, she is a very nice girl.
    I'll introduce you with Marry, she is a very nice girl.

    Those two are now correct - note the change of punctuation in the second.

    The woman's name Mary has only one r. Did you mean that?

    Yes that's what I meant. So do we always supposed to capitalize "u" of the uncle when it comes with a third person singular noun? and should we keep it small when we use it alone?

    Let me introduce you to my Uncle John.
    ("U" is capitalized here because we are using it with the third person singular noun "John")

    Let me introduce you to my uncle.

    ("u" is not capitalized here, because we are using uncle here alone)

    Yes, you've got it right. Titles are capitalized: Uncle John, President Hollande, Captain Queeg. The names of whatever they represent are not: John is my uncle. François Hollande is the president of France. Philip Francis Queeg was the incompetent captain of the USS Caine.

    There are exceptions: Ladies and gentlemen, the P​resident of the United States.

    Not quite. We us an initial capital when it's considered part of the name.

    My youngest uncle, John, lives in Worcester.
    My youngest uncle, Uncle John, lives in Worcester.

    You have been good to me, Uncle John.
    You have been a good uncle, John.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
