    'in order to' or 'to'

    Hi,
    Which sentence is correct and why? What is the difference in meaning?



    1. I have already written to you, and I received your reply to submit my documents.
    2. I have already written to you, and I received your reply in order to submit my documents.



    Thank you for your help in advance.

    Neither is correct. Did the reply request the first writer to submit the documents?

    1. I send a message to institution.
    2. I received a reply from institution to send my documents.

    At now, I would send my documents and I don't know 'How to write'.

    My suggestion:
    1. I have already written to you, and I received a reply to submit the documents.

    Re: 'in order to' or 'to'

    I wrote to you on [date] and I received your reply asking me to submit my documents. Those documents are now attached/enclosed.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
