or  other  untidiness),  and  the  contents  must  be  properly centered. ENGRAVED INVITATIONS When the ship sponsors a large social function, invitations may be wholly or partially engraved. If they are engraved for only one function, they are either wholly engraved (with the word  your substituted  for  the guest’s name) or wholly engraved except for the guest’s name which is written in. Partially engraved cards are more  practical  since  they  can  be  used  for  many occasions  (fig.  4-1).  Space  is  left  for  inserting,  in longhand, the guest’s name, the type of function, and the date and time the affair will take place. WORDING Figure  4-2  is  a  formal  written  invitation.  Note several things. The invitation is written in the third person, present tense. The name of the host (in this case his or her title) is in the third person, the word  requests is in the present tense, active voice. The name or title of the host is always shown in full, although the guest’s name  need  not  be  (the  words  your  company   are permissible). The date and hour are written in words; that is, if dinner were to start at 7:30 p.m., it would be shown as “half past seven o’clock.” Numbers may be used in an address. The only time you use punctuation is  when  words  need  separation  on  the  same  line.  You will seldom see punctuation in formal invitations or replies. The  general  format  for  wording  the  formal invitation is as follows: Line 1, name or title of the host, Figure  4-1.-Partially  engraved  invitation. Figure  4-2.-Formal  written  invitation. (Fig. 4-2 uses two lines because of the length of the title.) This is followed by (1) the invitation, (2) the name(s) of the guest(s), (3) the type of function, (4) the date, and (5) the time. When at other than the host’s home, (6) the address is centered below the line stating the time or in the lower right corner (fig. 4-3). Many invitations contain the letters  R.s.v.p. (or R.S.V.P.) in the lower left corner. This is a French phrase, Repondez s’il vous plait,  meaning Please reply. The phrase. A favor of a reply is requested, is sometimes used instead. Thus, the host will know in advance the number of guests to expect. When a function is held aboard ship, a schedule of boats and the dock from which they will leave may be included. This is usually shown in the lower left comer. Figure 4-3.-Formal written invitation to an event in a public ballroom. 4-7
