    The first three are widely used, I am not familiar with the other two. I would use 3.

    Hello,

    Please note I'm not a teacher;

    2. Referring to our letter of..
    3. We refer to our letter of…

    Is there any preference in usage of the above ?

    I'd use the first option at the beginning before referring and the second one after.
    Referring to our letter of (date?) .. blablablabla
    blablabla. We refer to our letter of (date?)

    Cheers
