How do you address a former ambassador in a letter?

Mr. T. Addressing him as 'the Honorable (Full Name)' would be in keeping with his American heritage. It is how a US citizen would address him—and how he would expect to be addressed in the United States. It is not incorrect for you to utilize it. The use of 'His/Her Excellency (full name)' adheres to international diplomatic protocol. There is no need to use "Sir" or "Madam Ambassador."

Asking him to return to being a "former ambassador" implies that he was never an ambassador in the first place, which is not correct. He may have been appointed an ambassador, but that does not mean that he was never anything else before that.

It is customary to sign letters to foreign diplomats in America addressed to "The Embassy of (country name)". If you are writing to Mr. (or Mrs.) X without knowledge of their position at the foreign mission, they will understand if you leave off the title "Ambassador". Otherwise, they might feel offended because it seems like you are ignoring them.

In conclusion, when addressing a former ambassador, it is appropriate to use their full name and title when writing to them. This shows respect for them even after they have left their post.

How do you address an envelope to a representative?

When addressing a letter to a lawmaker, use "The Honorable," followed by the representative's complete name and business address. In both letters and emails, use "Dear Mr./Mrs./Ms." followed by the representative's last name as the salutation. If the representative has an office in the house or senate, where they hold hearings or vote on legislation, then they can be addressed as "Senator/Representative Smith" or simply "Mr./Mrs./Ms. Smith".

If the representative has no office but still wants to receive letters, they will usually provide you with a private address. This is called a "mailing address" and it should be printed in place of their home address on all correspondence.

You can also send a letter through the United States Postal Service (USPS) if you have no personal contact information for your representative. To do this, write the letter and include postage paid return envelopes for both USPS and private mail services. Then, either call your local post office and ask them to make special delivery requests for each letter, or use one of the mailing service providers such as Amazon Prime Now, ShipStation, or DHL Express. These companies will take care of providing correct addresses, listing the representative in the memo section of each package, and delivering your letters directly to them.

It is important to note that not all representatives use official mailing addresses when they leave office.
