Dear Ms. Woolf:

Thank you for taking the time to discuss the editorial position at Franklin Publishing with me. After meeting with you and observing the company's operations, I am further convinced that my background and skills complement your needs.

I really appreciate that you took so much time to acquaint me with the company, as well as our discussion of the how the Harry Potter phenomenon has affected the publishing industry. I enjoyed my visit and I feel I could learn a great deal from you, as well as contribute to the work you're doing.

I look forward to hearing from you. Again, thank you for your time and consideration.
