    but ... nontheless

    My father is quite stubborn, but I will try to persuade him nonetheless.


    Hi,
    Does the above sound good? Is it better to rewrite it as the following? Thanks,


    My father is quite stubborn. I will try to persuade him nonetheless.
    My father is quite stubborn; Nonetheless, I will try to persuade him.

    I mistakenly put 'nonetheless' at the end of the third version. So does the first one sound good to you?
