I was reading about hackneyed expressions and I saw this expression that doesn't have any equivalent meaning. It is "yours of the 30th". I hope you can help me by giving me the meaning of it and also some references of those expression. Thanks again.

As far as I know, that would mean a letter written or statement made on the 30th of a month. I would not consider this to be a hackneyed expression.

Again I would say a letter or document written or dated on the 12th of a month. Now that I've seen it in context, it may well be a "hackneyed" expression. :wink:
