    Lot of mistakes ...

    Dear Teacher,

    The following letter has a lot of mistakes. Could you please correct it?


    Subject : Annual Vacation

    Sir,

    This is to kindly inform you that I joined this esteemed company in September 2003 and my annual vacation was due since September 2004.

    I would like to avail my vacation and visit my hometown Bangalore, India on March 9, 2006 to settle my personal problems.

    Therefore, I humbly request you to approve my vacation and request accounts to settle by dues up to December 2005.

    Thank you for kind understanding, cooperation and support.


    Yours truly,

    Re: Lot of mistakes ...

    annual vacation was due- has been due
    to avail my vacation- I'd say 'avail myself of' in british English, but I have seen this use in Indian English- who are you writing to?
    request accounts to settle by dues up to December 2005- request that accounts due to December 2005 are settled
    Thank you for kind- your kind...

    Is there any best format to write the same letter in a good manner?
