Dear Mrs. Smith:
I am pleased to have been offered the position of Patrolman. It is with great enthusiasm that I accept the position.
I understand that your office will be contacting me the week of February 18, at which time I will be informed of the date to report to Columbia for training. It is my understanding that the City of Malloy will cover the education expenses, and I will be responsible for my housing costs. The starting salary of $29,500 should be sufficient to support a family and provide a nice home for my children.

Dear Mrs. James:
I am pleased to have been offered the position of patrolman with your department.
I have had interviews with many other agencies in the past few weeks and your offer was not the only one I received. I have also been offered a position in Montpelier, Vermont at a much higher starting salary. After lengthy discussions with my wife and children, we decided it would be more advantageous for us at this time if I were to accept the position in Vermont.
I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to apply with your agency. In the event you have a position become available in the future, I hope you keep me in mind, I may wish to move back to the area.
