Parts of a Business Letter
The next two pages work together: Page 238 explains the parts of a business letter, and page 239 shows a business letter with the parts labeled.
First, review the parts of a business letter. Pay careful attention to the information to include in the heading and inside address. (See the model on page 239.) To enrich the discussion of the salutation, refer to the information on abbreviations on pages 381, 399, and 405.
