    Stop by

    Dear Teacher,

    Below is an excerpt of a dialog over the phone for your review.

    Me: Hi John, the document is ready for you to sign. Are you able to come to my office to sign it or you want me to mail it to your home for signing? But I still need the signed document for further process. So if I mail it to your home, you need to send it back to me.
    John: It will be effective if I come to your office to sign the document. I will stop by tomorrow afternoon about 3 o'clock
    Me: Okay. See you then.

    Is the usage of "stop by" correct in the above context?
    Any recommendation or correction for the above conversation so it sounds more natural?

    Thank you.

    John: It will be better if I come to your office to sign it. I will stop by tomorrow afternoon about 3 o'clock
    Me: Okay. See you then.

    My suggestions. "stop by" is fine.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”
