Sample Student Letters
Dear Washington DC,
Our class is taking a trip to Washington DC next month, and we must write a letter to you to get information for our report that we have to write for this trip. I am writing my report on two of the famous historical places in Washington DC, the Lincoln Memorial and the Capitol. Could you please send me information about both of these two places? You can send me the information at my school address which is 200 Main Street, Concert, Missouri 65432. You can mail it to my teacher Mrs. Smith and me. Thank you for your help.

Dear Chamber of Commerce,
The Concert High School freshman class will be traveling to Washington DC next month as a part of our study unit. Before we travel, we are required to write a research report on some element of Washington DC. I have chosen to study two historical monuments: the Capitol Building and the Lincoln Memorial. Please send me any information you might have that I can use for my research paper. Our teacher has asked that we have all correspondence mailed to her at our school’s address with attention to us.
Our school’s address is 200 Main Street, Concert, Missouri 65432.
Thank you for your help with my research project. I look forward to hearing from you.
