    even date

    If I send an agreement dated today's date to a customer by e-mail, can I say "Please find attached an agreement dated of even date for your record."? Or if there is any more natural way of saying it?

    Thanks!

    Re: even date

    You can say 'of even date' if you are sure the recipient is old-fashioned enough to know what you are talking about.

    A more natural way would be '. . .an agreement dated today' or '. . .an agreement bearing today's date' or '. . .an agreement dated 13 Sept 2012'.
