    Find attached

    Please find the attached quotation.
    Please find attached the quotation.

    Which is correct sentence?

    If second sentence is the correct sentence then please explain why it is correct./?

    I am confused that whether "the" should come before attached or after attached.

    You could also say "Please see the quotation attached." I like "see" better than "find." Both are correct, but "find" sounds bureaucratic.

    Which is the correct sentence?

    If second sentence is the correct sentence then please explain why it is correct? Because you're talking about THE quotation.

    Does that help?
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
