    Please tell me which of the following sentences are correct:

    i) I request you kindly to grant me leave for one day.
    ii) I request you to kindly grant me leave for one day.

    Thanks!

    Re: Problem

    i) I request you kindly to grant me leave for one day.
    => I kindly request you to grant me leave for one day.
    =>I request that you kindly grant me leave for one day.

    ii) I request you to kindly grant me leave for one day. <split infinitive; but, then again, English isn't Latin. >

    Or "I kindly request you grant me leave for one day" forget the 'to' form.
