    sent vs had sent

    Are both sentences correct and possible?
    1. I sent the letter by a messenger.
    2. I had the letter sent by a messenger.

    Thanks for your help.

    Re: sent vs had sent

    They would both be more natural if you remove the indefinite article. Otherwise, they're both OK.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
