I needed to find out my son's mailing address at school so I could ship all the essentials to him. Here is the email I sent.
Dear post office of institution of higher learning located in another state,
My son is an incoming freshman arriving today from Austin, TX. I would like to ship a couple of boxes to him and would appreciate having his proper mailing address in order to do so.
These boxes will contain clothes, linens and practical items for his dorm room. They will NOT contain any beloved family pets that sleep 23 hours a day, perishable food items from Texas such as jalapeño poppers, Hatch green chile pimento cheese salad, Franklin's barbecue or deep fried Oreos and definitely not the slightly smelly crocheted throw from the couch.
Many thanks for your help,
