    requested in your letter

    Teacher, is this sentence OK? Is there another way to write this sentence? I want to avoid using the word "request" twice. Thank you.


    We have written to Mr. Yung requesting him to provide us with the information requested in your letter of March 1, 2013.

    Re: requested in your letter

    The sentence is okay. Avoiding repetition of "requesting" is very simple. "We have written to Mr. Yung asking him ..."

    Re: requested in your letter

    We have written to Mr Yung, reminding him of your request for information, made on March 1, 2013.

    Probus' sentence is perfectly fine too, I should say.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
