Further things to consider when writing agreement letters to family
Agreement letters are letters written between two parties (one that renders a service and a second party, who accepts the service) to highlight the terms and conditions of the offered service. Such letters can be between an employer and employee, customer and vendor, contractor and company, two companies, etc. They can be used to outline job conditions between an employer and a new employee, for an independent contractor or vendor who is providing the company with various services, to confirm verbal agreement between two people, and much more. Since the terms and expectations are well stated in agreement letters, these letters are meant to protect both parties legally.
Most agreement letters are formal; hence they should be treated as such. However, depending on the form of agreement the letters can sometimes be informal. Regardless, all agreement letters must be simple and direct, and both parties should fully understand the content in the first reading itself. Make sure to include all the information about the agreement. Reiterate the key points of concern or anything that is unclear about the agreement. In order to bind both parties legally, agreement letters require signatures for both parties.
Letters to Family
Letters to family are letters written to people who are related to each other by blood, marriage, or adoption, who commit to the mutual relationship. In most cases, these letters are sent by people who are away from their families. The purpose of writing to family members is mostly to let them know that you care about them and that they are on your mind. Apart from greetings letters to say hello to your family, you could send a congratulation letter to your daughter for graduating to the next class, an apology letter for missing your son's birthday or a thank-you letter for a gift from your wife.
Letters to family are usually casual. Therefore, the tone should be warm, sweet, and friendly. Depending on the reason for your writing, you can address a family letter to a specific person or the entire family. Open the letter with warm greetings. Deliver your message clearly. Where necessary, mention important news or events. Write in a conversational manner that makes the recipient feel as if you are actually talking to him/her. Close with a statement of reassurance of your love for the recipient and/or a request to write back.
