Dear Dr. Dennis,
Your invitation to join the Executive Affiliate of the Engineering Guild is accepted with appreciation. Until you mentioned it in your letter, I did not realize that I was the first non-engineer in the Guild’s history to be admitted to membership. I am deeply honored. I should confess to you, however, that this statistic may soon be a relic of the past. Because of the intensification of my assignments in the field of mechanical engineering, I have been studying at night for a professional degree. If all goes well, I shall hold my B.E degree within three months.
