Dear John,

I am writing to request a week’s holiday next month, from October 12th – 16th inclusive. I appreciate that this is rather short notice, but my sister will be visiting me from Canada and I would very much like to spend time with her and show her the sights.

Please let me know if you can approve this. I will of course ensure that all my work is up-to-date and will delegate important tasks to avoid any disruption while I am away.

Kind regards,
