Hints to Letter Writers.
A few simple rules should be home In
mind for guidance, whether in a letter or a
cote. In the first place there is the man
ner of address. Begin any note or letter
to an acquaintance or a person to whom
you write for a favor, an inquiry, an
autograph, etc., "Dear," etc. The "Dear"
is n mere matter of j-oeial form, as mean
ingless as any commonplace Fociet y phrase,
but accepted by the best authorities as
correct. K wriiinjr an order to a workman
w hoistol'e employed, or if answering
pole or letter addressed in the third per
son, use this formula: "Miss (or Mrs.)
would like A. B. to come here at 9 a. m.
and attend totiie carpentering needed," or,
"Mrs. A. is in receipt of Mr. U.'s note of
the 10th, and she regrets she is unable to
pive him the information desired." It is
inelegant to bein any U tter "Friend," etc.,
although adopted by many well educated
people. The "Dear," etc., in such a case
should be used.
More mist -ikes, however, are made in
signatures, and here I would also suggest
a few simple rules. Never sign your name
with a prefix of any kind. The reason id
obvious. If you sign your letter, "Yours
truly. Miss Mary Smith," for example, you
make use of a title, the "Miss" having
nothing whatever to do with your name,
which is your signature. Therefore eti
quette requires you should sign as, for ex
ample, "Yours truly, Mary Smith." In the
event of writing to any firm or person who
would In returu need to know tiow to ad
dress you, put "Mrs." or "Miss" in brack
ets a little distance to the left of the signa
ture. In addressing a gentleman on busi
ness in a purely formal manner write thust
"Charles J. Brown, Esq. Dear sir." And
in such case always sign, "Yours respect
fully," etc. Harper's Young Teople.
