Dear Mr. Thomson,
I have known Mr. James for the past four years that he worked in my company. I know him to be a hardworking and efficient worker. I have to add that I have the utmost confidence in him. When Mr. James is on duty I know that the safety of my workers are in good hands, for Mr. James is one person who is genuinely concerned for the workers and with his vast knowledge and experience in handling industrial accidents, I can rest assured that everything is running in order.
Mr. James gets along well with his co-workers. They too have the utmost confidence in him. I am sure they, like me, would hate to see him leave the company. We would surely lose an excellent worker and a good friend. However, I cannot stop him from wanting to return to his home town to work. He has mentioned to me, on several occasions that he has to return home to look after his aged parents. That, indeed, is very commendable.
