Even though modern word processing and electronic mail greatly facilitate communication, one still must compose the basic letter, memorandum, or electronic message. In an effort to cut down on the time and intellectual intensity of this endeavor, I offer the following suggested form letter to the dean. This format may be used within basic word processing packages or for creating e-mail messages. All you need do is choose the most appropriate insertions for your basic message, and the message will be electronically created.
