To write plainly, use attached, enclosed or with this document instead of the legalistic herewith.

  • Legalistic: I am submitting herewith two copies of the report.
  • Plain: I have attached (or enclosed) two copies of the report.

In many instances, the best solution is simply to omit the word herewith.

  • I am submitting two copies of the report.
