    I need to write a letter to someone but it's not just any letter it's a letter to a prison. I have all the details etc. Now this might sound dumb but how do I set it out? I imagine it may be different to your standard letter?

    Cheers in advance.

    I'm pretty sure It's just set out like a normal letter, and if not I can't see there being any problem otherwise :)~

    What you need to do is write the name, wing and number on the top of the letter...thats the main thing you need.

    REMEMBER they ALL get read in advance;)

    Haha No I know the person :p

    Baah I don't have their wing number just their number? I was told it would still find its way to him though?

    And yes don't worry it's all clean and no plans of breaking him out etc. :p

    It will get there without the wing number on.

    They do read them all. When my uncle was in prison he sent my dad a letter saying ' whatever you do no not let mum dig in her vegetable patch'. A few days later a van load of police turned up and dug up the garden. My uncle then sent another letter to my dad saying ' now mum can plant her potatoes.'

    As long as you got his number on it then it will get to him, as others have said it DOES get pre-read and blank anything that they dont want him or you to read if he was to write to you.

    make sure you wrap the Metal Nail File in bubble wrap so it dont poke through the envelope ;)
