    Note the spelling of the word "difference". "Deference" is very different!

    The difference in both your examples is that the first sentence is in the present simple and the second is in the past simple.

    It depends on whether you want to say that you are writing to confirm something at the moment, or to remind somebody that you confirmed something in the past.

    Please try to give your threads more helpful titles.
