    Re: correct preposition

    As an NES but not a teacher, I would have no problem with the prepositions used.

    Thanks in advance.
    I would say "Enclosed is cheque no XXX, in the amount of £XXX, in payment of the above account/invoice.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
