    Respect Sir,

    I would like to inform you that my sister’s wedding date has been finalized. The marriage is on the 31st of December 2011 and as the elder brother I have to make several arrangements. Please grant me two days off, on the 28th and 29th of December 2011.

    I recommend that Henry Taft be put in charge of my team while I am away. He is more than capable of dealing with our work, and in case I am needed, he also has my contact information.

    I hope you will consider my request favorably,

    Best regards,
