Dear Richard Anderson,
I thought it only right to tell you first. I have been successful in achieving my dream job at Carson’s. As you know I have been trying for a position there for a long time, and now I start at the end of the month.
I know that it was your letter of recommendation that aided me to get this position and am truly grateful for everything you have done for me.
