Do you write 'with reference to the subject cited above" in the officeal letter?

Thats not very common in Britain. Here, you might write 'Dear Sir, With reference to your request for mopre information...' or something like that. We'd re-state the point of the letter within the first line rather than stating it above the salutation.
