Dear Ms. Linda,
You have been accepted for the job for which you applied, and it is my great pleasure to be the one to tell you so.
To be perfectly frank, I have to admit that there were other applicants who had more experience, whose references were more weighty, and whose salary demands were lower. But what my associates and I were most impressed with was the amount of homework you obviously undertook to evaluate our company and our industry and the way in which you see yourself as being involved. And we are genuinely enthusiastic about the fine suggestions you have already made about future growth and the expansion of our business.
We will hold you to it, firmly believing that with staff members like you the future will hold more than mere promise.
