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.
