    Cool written record

    Hello,


    Is the phrase " written record" correct here ,please?

    "Please, send me an email because I want to have a written record confirming what we said".


    Thanks a lot
    Will

    Yes, but you don't need a comma after 'please'.

    You don't have to say "confirming" either.

    Please send me an email so I have a written record of what we said.

    Depending on the context, it might be more appropriate to end with "... a written record of what we agreed" or "... a written record of what you are offering" or similar.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
