Manager, marketing department,
Dear Mr. Smith,
I, Hagret Lawrence, the junior manager of the marketing department, am writing this letter in utter desperation. The letter comes in your attention for pleading a leave of 2 weeks. I have been working for the last 18 months under your extremely comfortable guidance on a regular basis. This is not to make you aware of the fact that I have been serving without any leave for 18 months; rather I am liable to do so.
This letter is for seeking permission from your side to take a leave of 2 weeks from my work. I am in the peak of my health and the reason for seeking leave is to fulfil certain personal commitments. I assure you that I will resume the work as soon as possible. I will certainly be completing all my pending assignments. The situation has become desperate on my part and granting leave permission will work wonders.
