How to Write an Essay in French Without Giving Yourself Away as a Foreigner
Have something to say?
When it comes to expressing your thoughts in French , there’s nothing better than the essay.
It is, after all, the favorite form of such famed French thinkers as Montaigne, Chateaubriand, Houellebecq and Simone de Beauvoir.
But writing an essay in French is not the same as those typical 5-paragraph essays you’ve probably written in English.
In fact, there’s a whole other logic that has to be used to ensure that your essay meets French format standards and structure. It’s not merely writing your ideas in another language .
And that’s because the French use Cartesian logic (also know as Cartesian doubt) , developed by René Descartes, which requires a writer to begin with what is known and then lead the reader through to the logical conclusion: a paragraph that contains the thesis. Through the essay, the writer will reject all that is not certain or all that is subjective in his or her quest to find the objective truth.
Sound intriguing? The French essay will soon have no secrets from you!
We’ve outlined the four most common types of essays in French, ranked from easiest to most difficult, to help you get to know this concept better. Even if you’re not headed to a French high school or university, it’s still pretty interesting to learn about another culture’s basic essay!

Must-have French Phrases for Writing Essays
Before we get to the four types of essays, here are a few French phrases that will be especially helpful as you delve into essay-writing in French:
Introductory phrases , which help you present new ideas.
- tout d’abord – firstly
- premièrement – firstly
Connecting phrases, which help you connect ideas and sections.
- et – and
- de plus – in addition
- également – also
- ensuite – next
- deuxièmement – secondly
- or – so
- ainsi que – as well as
- lorsque – when, while
Contrasting phrases , which help you juxtapose two ideas.
- en revanche – on the other hand
- pourtant – however
- néanmoins – meanwhile, however
Concluding phrases, which help you to introduce your conclusion.
- enfin – finally
- finalement – finally
- pour conclure – to conclude
- en conclusion – in conclusion
For more formal phrases to rake your French essays up a notch, you can always browse through the FluentU media library for ideas. FluentU contains authentic French videos that let you hear the language outside of textbooks, like movie trailers, interviews, news segments and inspirational talks. This allows you to step away from your formal studies and hear how the language is used by native French speakers.
For essay writing, you might want to head to the more formal side of FluentU, like TED talks and informational clips that explore specific topics. Content like this will be rich in language that you can use in your essays.
As you watch videos, you can quickly check the meaning of any word by hovering your mouse over it in the subtitles. You can also click on them for a more in-depth exploration of the word (or phrase), including example sentences, grammar information and moments from other videos where the word appears.
You can add words to your flashcards and practice them later with personalized quizzes. You can use FluentU in a browser, but if you’re on the iOS or Android app then these quizzes will also include questions where you can speak your answers into your phone.
4 Types of French Essays and How to Write Them
1. text summary (synthèse de texte).
The text summary or synthèse de texte is one of the easiest French writing exercises to get a handle on. It essentially involves reading a text and then summarizing it in an established number of words, while repeating no phrases that are in the original text. No analysis is called for.
A synthèse de texte should follow the same format as the text that is being synthesized. The arguments should be presented in the same way, and no major element of the original text should be left out of the synthèse.
Here is a great guide to writing a successful synthèse de texte, written for French speakers. Note that this guide explains how to do a synthèse for multiple texts simultaneously, but the same steps can be followed for summarizing a single text.
The text summary is a great exercise for exploring the following French language elements:
- Synonyms , as you will need to find other words to describe what is said in the original text.
- Nominalization , which involves turning verbs into nouns and generally cuts down on word count.
- Vocabulary , as the knowledge of more exact terms will allow you to avoid periphrases and cut down on word count.
While beginners may wish to work with only one text, advanced learners can synthesize as many as three texts in one text summary. The concours exam for entry into the École Supérieure de Commerce de Paris calls for a 300-word synthesis of three texts, ranging from 750 to 1500 words, with a tolerance of more or less 10 percent.
Since a text summary is simple in its essence, it’s a great writing exercise that can accompany you through your entire learning process.
2. Text Commentary (Commentaire de texte)
A text commentary or commentaire de texte is the first writing exercise where the student is asked to present analysis of the materials at hand, not just a summary.
That said, a commentaire de texte is not a reaction piece. It involves a very delicate balance of summary and opinion, the latter of which must be presented as impersonally as possible. This can be done either by using the third person (on) or the general first person plural (nous) . The singular first person (je) should never be used in a commentaire de texte.
A commentaire de texte should be written in three parts:
- An introduction , where the text is presented.
- An argument , where the text is analyzed.
- A conclusion , where the analysis is summarized and elevated.
Here is a handy guide to writing a successful commentaire de texte, written for French speakers.
Unlike with the synthesis, you will not be able to address all elements of a text in a commentary. You should not summarize the text in a commentary, at least not for the sake of summarizing. Every element of the text that you speak about in your commentary must be analyzed.
To successfully analyze a text, you will need to brush up on your figurative language. Here are some great resources to get you started:
- Here’s an introduction to figurative language in French.
- This guide to figurative language presents the different elements in useful categories.
- This guide , intended for high school students preparing for the BAC—the exam all French high school students take, which they’re required to pass to go to university—is great for seeing examples of how to integrate figurative language into your commentaries.
- Speaking of which, here’s an example of a corrected commentary from the BAC, which will help you not only include figurative language but get a head start on writing your own commentaries.
3. Dialectic Dissertation (Thèse, Antithèse, Synthèse)
The French answer to the 5-paragraph essay is known as the dissertation . Like the American 5-paragraph essay, it has an introduction, body paragraphs and a conclusion. The stream of logic, however, is distinct.
There are actually two kinds of dissertation, each of which has its own rules.
The first form of dissertation is the dialectic dissertation, better known as thèse, antithèse, synthèse . In this form, there are actually only two body paragraphs. After the introduction, a thesis is posited. Following the thesis, its opposite, the antithesis, is explored (and hopefully, debunked). The final paragraph, what we know as the conclusion, is the synthesis , which addresses the strengths of the thesis, the strengths and weaknesses of the antithesis, and concludes with the reasons why the original thesis is correct.
For example, imagine that the question was, “Are computers useful to the development of the human brain?” You could begin with a section showing the ways in which computers are useful for the progression of our common intelligence—doing long calculations, creating in-depth models, etc.
Then you would delve into the problems that computers pose to human intelligence, citing examples of the ways in which spelling proficiency has decreased since the invention of spell check, for example. Finally you would synthesize this information and conclude that the “pro” outweighs the “con.”
The key to success with this format is developing an outline before writing. The thesis must be established, with examples, and the antithesis must be supported as well. When all of the information has been organized in the outline, the writing can begin, supported by the tools you have learned from your mastery of the synthesis and commentary.
Here are a few tools to help you get writing:
- Here’s a great guide to writing a dialectic dissertation .
- Here’s an example of a plan for a dialectic dissertation , showing you the three parts of the essay as well as things to consider when writing a dialectic dissertation.
4. Progressive Dissertation ( Plan progressif)
The progressive dissertation is a slightly less common, but no less useful, than the first form.
The progressive form basically consists of examining an idea via multiple points of view—a sort of deepening of the understanding of the notion, starting with a superficial perspective and ending with a deep and profound analysis.
If the dialectic dissertation is like a scale, weighing pros and cons of an idea, the progressive dissertation is like peeling an onion, uncovering more and more layers as you get to the deeper crux of the idea.
Concretely, this means that you will generally follow this layout:
- A first, elementary exploration of the idea.
- A second, more philosophical exploration of the idea.
- A third, more transcendent exploration of the idea.
This format for the dissertation is more commonly used for essays that are written in response to a philosophical question, for example, “What is a person?” or “What is justice?”
Let’s say the question were, “What is war?” In the first part, you would explore dictionary definitions—a basic idea of war, i.e. an armed conflict between two parties, usually nations. You could give examples that back up this definition, and you could narrow down the definition of the subject as much as needed. For example, you might want to make mention that not all conflicts are wars, or you might want to explore whether the “War on Terror” is a war.
In the second part, you would explore a more philosophical look at the topic, using a definition that you provide. You first explain how you plan to analyze the subject, and then you do so. In French, this is known as poser une problématique (establishing a thesis question), and it usually is done by first writing out a question and then exploring it using examples: “Is war a reflection of the base predilection of humans for violence?”
In the third part, you will take a step back and explore this question from a distance, taking the time to construct a natural conclusion and answer for the question.
This form may not be as useful in as many cases as the first type of essay, but it’s a good form to learn, particularly for those interested in philosophy.
Here are a few resources to help you with your progressive dissertation:
- Here’s an in-depth guide to writing a progressive dissertation.
- Here are a few corrected dissertations from the philosophy portion of the baccalaureat exam
As you progress in French and become more and more comfortable with writing, try your hand at each of these types of writing exercises, and even with other forms of the dissertation . You’ll soon be a pro at everything from a synthèse de texte to a dissertation!

📯 French Essay Topics
Are you one of those who are assigned to write French essays? Then we suggest you pick out some of the following problems to investigate:
- History of the French language;
- Dialects of the French language;
- French phonology;
- French orthography;
- French grammar;
- French alphabet.
The suggested topics are too vague and need narrowing. You may single out some aspects and analyze it in your paper. An excellent French essay topic should be:
- Broad for you to have enough room to develop your arguments;
- Narrow enough for you to be able to concentrate on one or several points;
- It should also be creative and original. You want people to enjoy reading it, right?
- Most importantly, the topic should be interesting for you.
If the essay topics seem too formal to you, study, for example, your progress in analyzing the French language. Alternatively, you can state what attracts you in the language and explain why. You may also do a comparative analysis of French and some other languages. Comparing French with English may turn out to be a fascinating task to cope with. Both languages will benefit from your French essay writing.
Here are some topics and French essay examples you can consider writing about:
- Your progress in learning the French language. Here you can write about your personal experience learning the French language. What techniques do you apply, and what motivates you personally. You can explain why you have to learn how to speak French.
- How is the French language and culture in Southern France different from Parisian? In this essay, you can compare Southern French dialect and culture with the one in Paris. What are some of the critical phonetic, grammatic, and linguistic characteristics of the Southern French?
- Parisian dialect as a standard of French .When people think about the French language, they immediately keep in mind the Parisian variant of French. In this essay, you can analyze why Parisian French became the standard version.
- Why do you enjoy learning French? This essay focuses on your personal preferences and likes in the process of learning. What makes it fun and enjoyable? Is it French movies, French literature, or understanding French written work documents?
- French influence on English. Although English is a Germanic language, it looks and sounds more like French. The influence which French had on English is significant. Look at some historical reasons (the Norman invasion in particular) and why English benefited from it.
- French language in 19th century Russia. Not everyone knows, but Russian was an official language of the Russian elite in the 19th century. Discuss the reasons why and what influence French culture had on Russian literature, music, and language.
- The effect of the French language on the development of English writing. More than 10,000 French words came to the English language. Not only did the vocabulary of English get more prosperous, but the French way of spelling and letter convention influenced English orthography.
- What caused French to become an aristocratic language in Europe? The reasons why the French language became so dominant throughout Europe are broad. In this essay, you can focus on economic grounds, cultural or political reasons.
- An analysis of Canadian French. This essay can be a comparative analysis of Canadian and European French. What are the main differences? What are some similarities between the two variants?
- Is there any similarity between French and German? All of the languages in the Indo-European language family have some similarities. Therefore, French and German is not an exception. You can focus on the sentence structure and the word order, pronunciation, or phonetics.
Do not treat your French essay as an ordinary task to undertake. Make it as creative as possible!
🖋️ How to Write a French Essay
Note that writing on some language problems requires more than your knowledge of the subject matter. It also tests your abilities to present them in terms of academic writing.
Special care should be taken concerning the following:
Receive a plagiarism-free paper tailored to your instructions.
- The structural organization of your French essay.
Mostly, it is similar to any other academic essay :
- It should start with a hook . In simple terms, it is the opening sentence or two of your writing. It can be a quote, a short story, or a catchy statement that grabs the reader’s attention.
Here’s an example of from the sample essay:
Every language is a mirror of society, a living organism that exists and changes under the influence of historical, political, and social conditions.
- The next part of your essay is a thesis statement . Typically, it should be placed at the end of the first paragraph. The thesis statement’s purpose is to state the central idea in one or two phrases.
Here is a thesis statement from our French essay example:
Today, it is common to study English as a foreign language, as an international means of communication. However, this does not diminish the importance of learning other foreign language like French.
- After that, the body of the essay should start. This part of the composition usually has three separate paragraphs. These paragraphs can include research, supporting evidence, and arguments that prove the point of view.
- The conclusion brings together all the points of the essay. It goes back to the thesis statement and explains the broader importance of the topic. It is the last chance to leave a lasting impression on the reader.
Here is an example form our French essay sample:
To conclude, the above discussion provides evidence and arguments that maintain the position according to which learning French is a necessity nowadays. The crucial points are as follows; first, French has a long tradition of international language; second, French is spoken around the globe; third, it is a language of international relationships. The opposing position that English is sufficient for appropriate global communication was claimed unreasonable – an emphasis in this regard was on the essence of cultural and language diversity.
- The logical organization of your French essay .
There are some ways in which you can coherently write your essay. The following three aspects can guide you when organizing your French essay:
Just $13.00 $10.40/page , and you can get an custom-written academic paper according to your instructions
- Topic sentence : you should mind linking elements within the paragraphs and between them. First of all, each section should include a topic sentence. It aims to identify the central idea and express an overall direction in which the writer will develop the paragraph.
The demand for knowledge of a language has changed in recent years.
- Concluding sentence: each paragraph should also include a concluding sentence. It asserts the main idea of the section and sums up all the information said in it.
It may be claimed that in a period of rather an aggressive introduction of the Anglo-American language in the world, the French need to persistently and resolutely defend their language, their national interests, and calls on other nations to preserve linguistic diversity.
- Linking words: it is crucial to use linking words in your essay. Linking words show relationships between ideas. It can be used to build sentences together to develop a cohesive paragraph.
To see the full essay sample, check the link below:
- Grammar, spelling, and vocabulary.
The last step in writing an A+ French essay is proofreading and editing. Before submitting your academic paper, make sure to pay attention to grammar, spelling, and vocabulary mistakes . Without proofreading, your writing can contain typos and errors that will not leave a good impression.

A Level French Essay Question 1
La société n’apprécie pas assez la jeune génération. Qu’est-ce que vous en pensez?
Source: Cambridge A Level French, Syllabus 9716, June 2016.
«La société n’apprécie pas assez la jeune génération». Selon qui, la société ou les jeunes? Et quelle jeune génération? 15-18 ans? 20-25 ans? Ces deux groupes n’ont déjà plus le même comportement!
Je pense que cette affirmation reflète bien le mal de notre époque: l’absence totale de responsabilité, et les bonnes excuses pour l’éviter. Par exemple, les psychologues et autres sociologues ont déjà inventé une bonne excuse pour le comportement grossier et antisocial de passer des heures sur un portable en ignorant tout le monde autour de soi: «c’est une addition».
«La société n’apprécie pas assez la jeune génération». Mais qu’est-ce que la jeune génération a fait, fabriqué, découvert, solutionné, amélioré, pour être tellement appréciée? Ne serait-ce pas plutôt aux jeunes d’apprécier les efforts de leurs aînés, grâce auxquels ils ont eu une vie facile, molle et confortable, sans privations et sans efforts?
Et ladite société apprécie-t-elle suffisamment ses générations antérieures ?
Pour être respecté, il faut être respectable. Dans le travail par exemple, quand on est débutant sans expérience, on gagne moins et on doit attendre son tour pour être promu. Les promotions viennent avec les résultats, c’est-à-dire avec l’expérience.
Et nous savons tous que se promener avec des cheveux rouges, des anneaux dans le nez et la figure, des pantalons prêts à tomber tout seuls ou des tatouages jusqu’aux yeux sera mal considéré.
Ceci dit, je pense aussi que les jeunes ont de bonnes raisons de se sentir mal. La société ne fait que parler des soi-disant problèmes des jeunes, comme si TOUS les jeunes étaient des marginaux volontaires et antisociaux, des délinquants, des buveurs et drogués en permanence. Personnellement, je ne connais aucun jeune à problèmes particuliers. Notre principal problème est de savoir s’il y aura encore des emplois disponibles après la fin de nos études!
Je pense enfin que cette affirmation provient de psychologues et autres sociologues en mal de clientèle. Je ne l’ai jamais entendue autour de moi, ni par des jeunes, ni par des aînés.
Et le sujet en lui même ne mérite en fait aucune attention particulière. Les jeunes et leurs aînés n’ont pas le même point de vue, c’est bien connu et c’est évident. La division provient de l’expérience ou de son manque.
Autrefois les jeunes voulaient aller à la guerre pour pouvoir démontrer leur bravoure, et parce qu’ils n’en connaissaient pas les conséquences, tandis que leurs aînés voulaient éviter la guerre justement parce qu’ils en connaissaient les conséquences. Les jeunes sont imprudents, les aînés sont prudents parce qu’ils ont de l’expérience. Ceci est une loi de la nature.
Je pense que la société actuelle a toutes ses priorités à l’envers: elle ne s’intéresse qu’aux jeunes à problèmes, ignore totalement les jeunes sans problèmes, et n’apprécie absolument pas assez les générations des grands-parents et des parents !

Jusqu’à quel point les innovations technologiques sont-elles nuisibles? Dans mon opinion, jusqu’à la destruction de la société!
Les effets non désirables des dernières innovations technologies sont nombreux. Les technologies modernes sont en train de détruire physiquement l’homme et la planète, et moralement ou philosophiquement la société.
Les véhicules utilisent des combustibles fossiles, les appareils électroniques fonctionnent à base de métaux (cuivre, zinc, nickel,) et minéraux (quartz, cobalt, etc.) qui tous doivent être extraits ou minés du sous-sol. L’activité de forage ou minière détruit de grandes extensions de terres cultivables, pollue les rivières et océans, et cause des glissements de terrain. Tout cela pour produire des masses de gadgets ou produits totalement superflus qui finiront dans six mois dans les poubelles. Sans parler des véritables montagnes de déchets dus à la consommation inutile.
L’industrie agro-alimentaire produit de véritables poisons présentés dans de jolis emballages colorés. De grandes quantités de terres cultivables sont consacrées à des produits qui n’alimentent pas et détruisent la santé, tels que le sucre, le café ou l’huile de palme. Des animaux souffrent un martyr de toute leur vie en batterie avant de terminer à l’abattoir. Et l’homme moderne mange trop, devient diabétique, cardiaque et obèse. Mais il est content parce qu’il a la télé et un portable.
Du point de vue social, les technologies dites de communication sont en train de ruiner la société. En effet, les ordinateurs et les machines ont déjà supprimé trop d’emplois. 70% des contenus Internet ne sont que pornographie et violence, et 20% sont de publicité et vente. Cela ne laisse que 10% de contenus dignes d’intérêt. L’apparition des contenus indésirables sur Internet coïncide avec une augmentation énorme de la violence et des abus contre les femmes et les enfants.
Ces mêmes technologies ont des effets nocifs physique aujourd’hui bien connus: problèmes de dos, perte de la vision et de l’audition à un âge toujours plus jeune, effets cancérigènes de trop de fréquences électromagnétiques, etc.
Socialement, les réseaux devraient être appelés «antisociaux», non seulement parce qu’ils ont été créés dans un but haineux et néfaste, celui d’espionner le public, mais aussi parce que le public lui-même soit l’utilise à des fins haineuses ou criminelles, soit en est la victime.
On ne calcule plus, on ne mémorise plus, on ne rédige plus, on ne raisonne plus, la machine le fait. Sauf en cas de panne électrique, bien sûr… Et déjà, on ne pense plus beaucoup non plus…
L’être humain est en train de devenir complètement l’esclave inutile de ses machines, qui en plus sont en train de lui détruire complètement son habitat.
Jusqu’à quel point les innovations technologiques sont-elles nuisibles? Je vous laisse juge…

DELF A1-A2 Production Ecrite: Guide to Writing an invitation in french
In the Production ecrite section of DELF A1 and DELF A2 you may be asked to write an invitation to someone for a particular event. In this article we will be looking at how to write a message or email inviting someone in french.
In general for your french exam an invitation is usually for, however not limited to, :
- to see a movie
- A Christmas party
- an office party
- a party to celebrate an engagement
- a retirement party
- a party to celebrate the end of studies
- a baby shower or the birth of a baby
- a birthday party
When asked to write a letter or a message inviting someone, no matter the type, the structure is usually the same. Here are some basic steps to follow when writing an invitation:
Before you start
- Read the instruction and make sure it is a letter requesting that you write an invitation
- Determine to what you need to invite someone
- Who you should be inviting
- Determine if you should be writing a friendly invitation or a professional invitation
When you are writing:
- Use the right opening greetings, depending on the type of invitation
- Say what the invitation is for
- Say when and where the event will take place
- Give them a means to confirm or refuse the invitation
- Let them know you are looking forward to seeing them at the event
- Use the correct closing for your message
For the greeting for a professional letter use:
Cher Monsieur ………………………., Chère Madam…………………………..,
For the greeting for a friendly letter use:
Cher…………………., Chère…………………., Salut…………………….., Bonjour…………………..,
Use the following expressions to start your invitation:
Je vous invite ………………. (au restaurant).
Je vous invite…………………(a diner a la maison).
Vous voulez aller diner au restaurant? Je vous invite.
Example of an invitation:
Vous organisez un vin d’honneur pour votre mariage et vous voulez inviter vos collègues et amis.
You organize a reception for your wedding and you want to invite your friends and colleagues.
Ca va bien? Pour notre mariage, Sandrine et moi organisons un vin d’honneur à Versailles. Nous espérons que tu seras des nôtres pour fêter avec nous notre bonheur. RSVP au : 06 87 45 67 00.
(Word Count: 42 words)
TIP! If you notice, based on the instruction that was given, I reused almost all the words that was given . I do not try to find words. This is extremely useful when you have limited vocabulary.
Now it is your turn:
Cher/Chère________ [use the first name if it is someone that you are familiar with or the last name if is someone you do not know very well ] ,
Pour notre mariage, nous organisons un vin d’honneur/ un cocktail à/dans ________ [precise the place where it will be held ] . Nous espérons que vous/tu seras des nôtres pour fêter avec nous notre bonheur. RSVP au : ________ [ You can write here your postal address, your telephone number or your email address] .

Guidelines and practical tips.
To produce good quality essays in French it is important not to think it out in English and try to translate it.
Widen your French vocabulary as much as possible. Use the new words you have learnt as much as possible.
Learn phrases, clauses and sentences that will be useful in an essay. Try to develop a good French style.
Stages of essay writing
Think strategicaly about how to approach a writing assignment.
- Taking in the title. Underline keywords and if necessary check their meanings. Think about the title.
- Gathering material. Collect notes from various sources.
- Generating ideas. Get your ideas down on paper, jot down thoughts, sample sentences.
- Planning. Organise your notes into a simple and coherent outline plan.
- First draft. Check your work for structure and language mistakes as you go along.
- Reviewing. Read over your work and correct errors and omissions
- Final draft. Word process or write legibly. Your general presentations should be good - first impressions do count!.
Exam Essays AS
You will write a piece of French usually a letter, report or article from a printed stimulus.
- Read the question carefully and make sure you understand it. Don't rush to start writing.
- Use your phrases and vocabularly well. Write as fluently as you can. Don't repeat phrases, use a variety.
- Check your work carefully and methodically.
- Keep within thw word limit - most important!
Exam Essays A2
You will not have time to do all the 7 steps in an exam!
Choose your title carefully. By now you should know what kind of essay you prefer writing so choose carefully.
Usually there are 3 types:
- creative e.g.writing about a photo, a newspaper article
- discursive e.g. current affairs, European issues, social problems.
- task based e.g. a letter, and advert, a report.
A good essay will include:
- A relevant introduction. Keep it fairly breif , get down to the business of the essay quickly.
- A coherent development. Sort out your points and present them in a strctured way, giving your essay a beginning, a middle and an end.
- A strong conclusion. The conclusion should show the reader that you have really 'answered the question' or ' repsonded to the title'.
- Check your work e.g. go through the verbs then the adjectives, gender spelling.
- Count the words. It is very important to keep within the word limit. If your essay is too long, it could cut out your conclusion and therefore lose you marks.
- Use as many tenses as you can (correctly!).
Learn a few of these to use in essays.
Some phrases and clauses.
1. Telling stories in the past.
2. The future
3. Joining words
There is usually a journalistic style essay in the creative section you will probably use third person singular and plural a lot in this type of writing so make sure you have revised your verbs thoroughly!
Task based writing
Ensure you can lay out a letter in the correct way:
1. A formal letter
Bristol le 14 mai (usually you put the town and date)
Monsieur / Madame (Dear Sir/ Madam)
2. A more informal letter to someone you know (or at least their name)
Chamonix le 20 novembre
Chère Madame Marceau (Dear Mrs Marceau )
Bien cordialement (Your Sincerley)
