If I am writing a letter to my the Village Clerk, how do I address that person. Do I use Honourable or not. Thanks in advance.
I'd write Dear Mr. Niaz, Dear Ms. Niaz, or (if you don't know the name) Dear Village Clerk.
And in the U.S., if we know the person at all, we use the first name: Dear Pat. I think the idea of using first names horrifies the British, who only do that with family and long-time friends.
