Now, I need to write one formal letter to tell one department that I have lost one document.

In the letter , I should tell the reasons for the losing, and request for re-issue.

However, I do not know how to use formal English to write.

Anyone help me?

Thanks a lot !!!

Hi,

Begin by just writing what you would say if you were speaking to the person face to face. Then post that here and we will help you with comments. OK?
