Tengo que pedir un favor a alguien relativamente importante. (El editor de una revista SCI). Buscando en distintas discusiones he diseñado este encabezamiento:

Dear Dr. John Doe

Pardon my rudeness, but I betray your trust about ...(y aquí el favor de marras)


¿Cómo se ve? ¿Demasiado formal? ¿Humillante? ...


Gracias por anticipado.

    Aunque será mejor esperar a la opinión de un nativo, a mí a simple vista me suena fatal. Es un arranque un poco afectado y con una cierta carga de negatividad. Es posible que ni te contesten si empiezas así.

    Pero no me hagas caso, a ver qué dicen los nativos.

    I am not sure what the issue is but the opening seems like you are about to insult the person. If you are only asking for a favor, go ahead and ask the question and then follow it up with more humbling remarks. I am not the best with flowery speech, but I am sure someone else will come along with something better.

    Dear Dr. John Doe,

    I know you are a very busy person, but I would appreciate it if you could help me with the following issue. ...(y aquí el favor de marras). I would like to thank you in advance if you can help me with my issue, but I will understand if you do not have the time in your busy schedule to help me at this moment.
