    The both are correct, there are some punctuation mistakes. Instead of "Please send congratulate to him" you should use : Send congratulations to him. Also, look at the distinction between weather and whether :)

    They are not both correct. Please respond to questions only if you are sure that your response is helpful and correct.

    If you need to ask that, then perhaps it is better not to post your suggestions.

    Your corrections are OK, though I think the simple past 'invited' suffices.

    ... another friend's daughter..., ... the daughter of another friend of mine... - If you have more than one other friend.
    ...my other friend's daughter... - If you have only one other friend.

    I have just re-read that response to Matthew. It sounds rather dismissive of the many excellent responses Matthew has given over his nearly three years on the forum, I apologise if that was the impression it gave.

    I intended merely to suggest that if one needs to ask for confirmation of a correction, then it might be better to wait for someone who is needed to confirm a post to respond to that post first.

    I think 'are' is missing before 'sure' above. Please correct me if I am wrong.
    (Sorry for asking for confirmation again.)
