    period or comma?

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by dillseed, May 3, 2015.

    Is it customary to use a comma or a period after "Hi", "Hello", and "Greetings" at the top of an informal correspondence?

    Eg:

    Hi, <---or a period here?

    I am writing to express concern .....


    Hello, <---or a period here?

    I am writing to express concern .....

    Thank you.
