    recomandation letter

    Dear Sir,

    Please write for me a letter recommending child admission in school.

    The letter should be written by an influential officer recommending his friend daughter to be admitted to one good school.

    Please help

    THANKS

    Re: recomandation letter

    How can anyone who does not know the daughter possibly do that? There is no way to recommend a complete stranger for something, least of all when pretending to be someone else.

    Note my corrections above.

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