Lesson 59: AVOIDING OVERUSED BUSINESS LETTER PHRASES
Grammar Pattern
Avoiding overused business letter phrases:

• according to our records   • on receipt of  
• after careful consideration   • please do not hesitate to
• any further action    • please find enclosed  
• as you are aware   • please forward
• at your earliest convenience   • trust this is satisfactory  
• detailed information  • under separate cover
• enclosed for your information    • upon receipt of  
• for your convenience   • urgent attention
• further to    • we acknowledge receipt  
• in receipt of   • we regret to advise

Original:
