Dear Jack Martinez,

With regret I must decline your letter of recommendation request. As we have only worked together for five weeks, I do not believe that I have not had the opportunity to witness you perform at your best or at your maximum capabilities. Colleagues and supervisors with whom you have worked on larger, more complex projects would be more qualified to write a legitimate letter of recommendation.

It pleases me that you have identified an opportunity you wish to pursue with such dedication and I wish you the best of luck with your new venture.

Sincerely,

Bellamy
