    Re: Help

    In the U.S a colon is normally used after the dear Mr....

    In the UK, we use a comma or nothing.

    There are different ways to lay out a letter and your format differs slightly from what I'm used to, but that could be another minor discrepancy between American and U.K styles.

    Aside from that it looks fine to me.

    I'm not a teacher.
