The number of the house is
always put before the name
of the street:
Miss Katie Hall
10, Kensington Gardens,
London W.
When I want to write a
letter, I need a nib and a
penholder (or a fountain pen),
some ink (in an inkstand), one
or two sheets of notepaper
(foolscap paper is not used for
letter writing), and an
envelope. When I have finished
the letter, I sign it and read
it through to see if I have
left out anything (a word), or
made any spelling mistakes.
Then I fold it up, and put it
in an envelope, close it, write
the address, put on a stamp,
and post it.
When addressing people
never use (say) Mr., Mrs., or
Miss without the name: »Yes
Miss Smith»; »I will come at
once Mr. (Mrs.) Smith», and so
on. Never use titles in the
third person when you speak
to a person: Where have you
been Mr. Smith? — Will you
come with us for a walk,
Doctor? — If you say: »Where
has Mr. Smith been?» you
don’t speak to Mr. Smith, but
about Mr. Smith to somebody
else.
