Dear ............,

Sample Answer:

Dear Hans,

It was a pleasant surprise to receive your letter last Monday. I must confess I have not been in touch as frequently as I should have but you have never been away from my thought. I was thrilled to learn that your travel company is thriving gradually. I wish every success of it in the coming days.

It was an honour that you have offered me a position in your company. However, I regret to turn down the offer as I have recently started working in a bank as a junior officer. This is a dream job for me and I am so happy to have been recruited there.

I wish I could have joined your company and work closely with you! It was a startup company last year and now it already has a second branch. I am so happy for you and I am sure you will excel in your business very rapidly.

Please convey my best wishes to Maria and your children. Why don't you visit us sometime and have fun like the old days? Stay fine and take care.  

Warm wishes,
