[Subject: Normally bold, summarizes the intention of the letter] -Optional-

Dear Mary Johnson Gray,

I was both honored and flattered by your recent letter of recommendation request. Regrettably, however, I must decline your request.

I wholeheartedly support your application and had we had greater professional interactions over the year I would be more than willing to prepare a letter for you. Due to the minimal time we spent working together I feel it would be remiss of me to attempt to best describe your potential, skills, expertise and talents. I feel it would be in your own best interest to find a colleague or supervisor who has worked more closely with you and who could prepare a persuasive letter of recommendation for you.

I wish you great success in your future.
