  • The enclosed check is payment in full ($45,340.00) for the agricultural equipment we purchased on August 29, 2001 (invoice #123).

3. Discuss details associated with the payment, as necessary. These details may include problems, shortages, quality concerns, or expressions of appreciation.


  • I spoke with one of your staff on the phone yesterday concerning my account. He said you had not received my payment for May. As I went through my records, I found that I had sent check #123 for $67.00 to you on April 27, but it has not cleared the bank yet. It is either in your office or lost in the mail. In the meantime, I have stopped payment on the check and I have enclosed a replacement check to bring my account up to date.
  • The attached check for $575.00 is our rent check for July, less the amount we paid for emergency plumbing repairs last month ($372.50). You will recall that we discussed the problem over the phone, and you authorized me to call the plumber and do whatever was necessary to get the toilet repaired. I have attached the itemized bill from Doe Plumbing.
  • Thank you for the prompt delivery of our new equipment. Enclosed is my payment in full for invoice #123.
  • The payment is $130.50 short because I am disputing the Doe Postal Service shipping charge of $238.00. The supervisor at the local Doe office says that the rate should only be $107.50 (see attached memo).
  • We are very happy with the new equipment. Thanks!
