Chapter 3. Structure: The Parts of a Letter > Personal or Confidential Note

Personal or Confidential Note

The inclusion of a personal or confidential note is optional. When such a notation is used, however, it should always be because the writer wants the letter to remain confidential between him or her and the reader. If such notations are used as gimmicks to attract a reader to a letter, they will lose their effectiveness.

Except with the official-style format, the personal or confidential note should be located four lines above the inside address. It does not need to be underlined or typed in all capital letters. If a writer feels it necessary to underline or capitalize, he or she should choose one or the other but not both.
