What am I missing???

"The day before, I had written him a letter." Now, of course I can translate this safely as "La veille, ...". However, why not as "Le jour précédant,..."? After all, it stands on its own, or doesn't it? -- Chris.

This relates to:
When to use "demain"/"hier" vs "le lendemain"/"la veille" vs "le jour suivant"/"le jour précédent" -

Bonjour Chris !

Yes, as it stands on its own, it will be "le jour précédEnt" and not "le jour précédAnt (quelque chose)"  :)

À bientôt !
