Dear Mr. Burger:


Explanation:
A note of explanation: The honorific form of address "draga domnule" has no direct equivalent in American English. Even when writing to the President of the
United States, we say simply "Dear Mr. President." -- The nearest equivalent of "Draga domnule Burger" in British English would be "My dear Mr. Burger," which is
the standard formal salutation (with no connotations of familiarity, which the same phrase would have in the U.S.A.). The use of a colon rather than a comma after the addressee's name adds a further touch of formality. -- Hope this helps, H.C.
