      I always write it this way:

      'We attach the catalogue as requested.'

      Is this grammatically correct?

      Hi Iza:

      Your examples are good ones. They remind us that it is usually best to
      write as concisely as possible.

      One small correction to your first old example. It should read:

      "We are pleased to enclose herewith our catalogue as requested by you
      for your kind perusal."
