Dear Mr. Bailey:

Thank you for your quick response, but I must decline your generous offer of 300 bucks a week to run your errands and shop. I am seeking an office position where I can talk on the phone and play on the internet all day, especially when you're out of town on business. This position requires just too much effort.

Since I am no longer a candidate for this position,I have refered your response (and your contact info) to a friend of mine who is currently looking for part-time work that won't interfere with her current position with the Ohio Police Department. She should contact you by the end of the day.

Good luck with your new business venture.
