    what about the first one?
    is that correct, I have not written to you or or what

    Re: Letter to Beth

    Sorry, Matt. I missed the first one. Here it is:

    [1] have not written

    As for the last one, "I enclosed", the reason it's incorrect is this. You're writing the letter now, in the present, so use the present: present continuous or present perfect. The present simple "I enclose" also works, but it's not as common as the other two verb choices.

    All the best.

    You're welcome, Matt.

    By the way, the phrase a lot is two words. You can put another word between 'a' and 'lot': a whole lot.

    All the best,
