Ms. Sharon Turner,
Dear Ms. Turner,
I am writing to you to request you to grant me a leave for ten days starting this Friday. My daughter has been admitted in the hospital and needs to be taken care of. She has been diagnosed pneumonia and had to be admitted for further tests. Since my wife is out of town on some personal business, I am the one available to take care of her. I will report on duty as soon as she is discharged.
Kindly consider my application and oblige.
Thanks and regards,
