    Default Lot of mistakes ...

    Dear Teacher,

    The following letter has a lot of mistakes. Could you please correct it?


    Subject : Annual Vacation

    Sir,

    This is to kindly inform you that I joined this esteemed company in September 2003 and my annual vacation was due since September 2004.

    I would like to avail my vacation and visit my hometown Bangalore, India on March 9, 2006 to settle my personal problems.

    Therefore, I humbly request you to approve my vacation and request accounts to settle by dues up to December 2005.

    Thank you for kind understanding, cooperation and support.


    Yours truly,

    annual vacation was due- has been due
    to avail my vacation- I'd say 'avail myself of' in british English, but I have seen this use in Indian English- who are you writing to?
    request accounts to settle by dues up to December 2005- request that accounts due to December 2005 are settled
    Thank you for kind- your kind...

    Is there any best format to write the same letter in a good manner?
