This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Proofreading questions are off-topic unless a specific source of concern in the text is clearly identified." – Hellion, tchrist, Andrew Leach
Already usually goes with the verb, in 'mid-position'.
- she has already graduated”
It can also go at the end of a clause, for emphasis.
- Are you here already? You must have run all the way.
The AmE use of a past tense with already is becoming common in BrE.
- I already told Jane about the party.
(Oxford Practical English Usage p 296)
While the proposed sentence is not incorrect, it is awkward for most usage. The more common form in standard American English would be: "I have already posted the letter."
