    Letter writing

    I understood that one should use sincerely as a close when opening with a Christian name. When writing either Mr/Mrs x or Sir/Madam use faithfully. Is this correct?

    I'm afraid not.

    The convention is -

    sincerely with christian name and Mr/Mrs/Miss/Ms


    faithfully with Madam/Sir(s) etc.
