Письмо должно быть правильно структурировано:
— обращение, соответствующее неофициальному стилю, на отдельной строке;
— вступление с ссылкой на предыдущие контакты (на полученное письмо) — отдельный абзац;
— главная часть, соответствующая пунктам задания (несколько абзацев — помните о правильном делении на абзацы);
— завершающая фраза на отдельной строке;
— подпись на отдельной строке (только имя).
Письмо надо также правильно оформить:
— краткий адрес автора в правом верхнем углу;
— дата (под адресом).
