I have a hard time writing a formal letter in English for the first time in my life and without any good reference or previous training. I am stuck in the final phase where I want to express that I am waiting with hope for a favorable respose and by then I want the receiver to accept my salutations.
In French, I would write something like:
"Dans l'attente d'une réponse de votre part, je vous prie de croire, Madame, Monsieur, à l’expression de mes salutations les plus distinguées."
Moreover, are such expressions acceptable in English formal letters?
