Letter to the Manager of a Bank requesting him to stop the Payment of a Cheque

Dear Sir,

I had issued a Cheque No. 057231 dated 12th November, 19.., in favour of Mr. Ramesh Quad of Ratna Prakash, Darya Ganj, New Delhi, for Rs. 305.75, towards the payment for purchase of some books. My SB Account No. is 88765. Please stop the payment of this cheque as it has not reached the person concerned, sent by post a fortnight back.

I think it has got lost in mail-transit. In view of the above fact, since the cheque may fall in the hands of some undesirable hands, its payment should be stopped.

Please advise me the needful in this respect

With thanks.
