    Re: on/in the morning of the next day

    As an NES but not a teacher:

    Context is important.

    Do you mean "tomorrow"?
    If so, I would say something like "I'm going into town shopping tomorrow morning" - I.e. no "in/on".

    Regards

    Re: on/in the morning of the next day

    No, I don't mean "tomorrow."
    Matt didn't know exactly what time his bags would arrive, but thought it should be sometime __ the morning of the next day.
    Which preposition should I use in the above sentence, in or on?

    Re: on/in the morning of the next day

    I, personally would have probably used "on", but may have rephrased it as ".....be sometime the following morning".

    Re: on/in the morning of the next day

    I'd use either "... sometime the following/next morning" or "... sometime during the following/next morning". The former is more natural.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
