    ... reminding you of ...

    If it is not much to ask, I was wondering if you wouldn't mind reminding you of (something the recipient already promised me to do).


    Is the underlined part OK?

    The whole thing doesn't make sense. Please explain what you're trying to say in simple and direct English.

    Re: ... reminding you of ...

    If you add "me" (some people would use "my") after "mind", I think I can work out what you're trying to say. For example:

    I was wondering if you would mind me reminding you that you said you'd have that report ready for me this morning.

    I find it overly wordy and formal at the start though. I might say "Can I just remind you that you said you'd have that report ...?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I would like to say this:

    I want to remind you of writing the letter.

    Re: ... reminding you of ...

    That's still unclear, I'm afraid.
    Do you mean the following?
    I was wondering if that letter you said you'd write for me is ready yet.
