    how to write this sentence?

    hi,

    suppose i want to ask someone if the fax she received from me actually contains the same information as the original that i have in hands...

    may i say:

    "
    according to the form i have in hands my arrival date is jan/31th.
    i wonder if the fax u have received is just the same."

    ?

    thanks,
    jc

    According to the agenda I have, I arrive on January 13th. Can you confirm that you received the same information in the fax sent to you?

    It could be rephrased like this:

    "suppose I want to ask someone if the fax that I have sent them actually contains the same information as the original in my possession...".
