    Title correction

    Please help me to correct the letter.
    Dear Sir/Madam,
    Ref:Pension of Miss.Gunasundari\PPO 8609876
    With reference to the above,we found in our records that the pensioner is a unmarried daughter of Late Mr.Raju whereas in your letter dated 02/02/19 it has been mentioned as widowed daughter of Mr.Raju. Therefore we are not able to process the pension sanctioning request of Miss.Gunasundari.In this connection please provide us the correct details with relevant documents at the earliest to make necessary action at our end.

    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
