    Are these sentences correctly used in formal letters?

    Hi everyone,

    I am writing a formal letter to a lecturer. I do not know if the following sentences are correctly and politely used. Can anyone give me some feedback?

    1. As I will not be back until the end of this month, may I write to ask for lecture notes of the lessons to come. (Should I use a "." or a "?"?)

    2. As I will not be back until the end of this month, I write in hope that you could kindly send me lecture notes of the lessons to come.

    3. As I will not be back until the end of this month, may I politely ask for you sending me lecture notes of the lessons to come.

    Thank you!

    As I will be away until the end of the month, I would be very grateful if you would send me the lecture notes for the lectures I will miss. Thank you.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
