    don't remember

    Are these sentences OK? Which one is clearer?

    a) I don't remember receiving a letter from XXX Company regarding their plan to upgrade their services.

    b) I don't remember we received a letter from XXX Company regarding their plan to upgrade their services.

    The first one is grammatical; the second isn't.

    Re: don't remember

    Hello Raymott. How are you?

    But both look similar to me. First one is a simple sentence and the next one is a complex sentence. I can not find the grammatical error( in my poor eye).
    Thankss.

    "I don't remember we received a letter" This part is ungrammatical.
