Writing Business Letters

INSTRUCTIONS: Write a letter of refusal to an organization that has asked you to volunteer your time or a service. Tone is important in this letter, so be honest, and say no nicely. Offer other ideas, or suggest people who can help. Circle the subject of each sentence to check your use of CORE CONTROL.

Example of a Well-Written Business Letter

Scouts of America
407 Main St.
Charleston, SC 93200

Dear Mr. Goldman:

Thank you for inviting me to speak at the Annual Scouts of America Awards Banquet. Although I enjoy working with my own small group of scouts, I am quite shy and am very uncomfortable in any public speaking situation. (Once when asked to pray over the offering at my church, I fainted in front of the entire congregation.)

If you would like help setting up for the banquet, I am available. Also, my fellow Scout Leader Socrates Ames, is a member of Toastmasters. He may be able to help you. His number is 423-7651.

I have enjoyed my four years as a Scout Leader. With two more sons ready to enter Scouts, I hope to be with you for quite some time. (You) Please let me know if I can help with the banquet.

All the best

Frank Lee Mideer
