Yes he did for being a UAC'er in the Fantasy Forums Wink. Typo Smiley.

*Beep* That is incorrect, it would be acceptable in a letter to a friend or a penpal but by a formal letter I mean something such as having to write a letter of application for a job.

I have studied 5 years of French also, just had my French Writing GCSE today and now I will be learning French no more!

In Britain the tradition is to write Yours Sincerely if you are addressing someone you know or know the name of and Yours Faithfully if you don't know them or their name.

Generally the name part isn't used and it is just Yours Sincerely to those you know and Yours Faithfully to those you don't.

History

Good thing! (as spoken by one who actually makes money of telling people strange facts of history like how many pots and pans the royal kitchens had around 1850)

If you run out of questions, I'm quite willing to surply you with some more.
Topics like:
"Know your post-1945 African statesmen"
"Countries that no longer exists"
"What war?"
and much more Wink

I'm more of a presidential historian. I can tell you things about Franklin Pierce few others could. It's just my hobby.

Well, this isn't just about the Presidency Tongue. It is more general knowledge.

Can you just give us the answer to the bonus question?

Or at least let us guess again?

BTW, for the french letter:

"ma sincere reconnaissance et a mes sentiments distingues,

(Name)"

obviously there ae little lines aboe certain letters, but you get the point. Sometimes, you add "Ameties" before the name.

That isn't the ending I use but it is correct I believe so

*Ding* Correct

The ending that I personally use is:

Je vois prie d'agréer Monsieur/Madame à l'expression de mes sentiments les plus distingués.

The Standings:

Beet: 4
PBrunsel: 1
Tigerfan04: 1
Jens: 1
Hughento: 1

The correct answer to my bonus question is 1932. Smiley No one guessed correctly although some were close.

New Question:

What was the Senate Vote on the Censuring of Senator Joseph McCarthy in Decemmber 1953. I need both for and against the censure, e.g. 82-7.
