Dear Mr Paul
I am hopeful this electronic mail will find you well.
In the first instance, please allow me to express my sincerest apologies for the length of time I took before penning this communiqué to you. It has just been overly hectic on my side since we returned home from the United Kingdom and the Kingdom of the Netherlands. I would like to thank you, on behalf of the delegation I led, for your warmth and the professional manner in which you discharged your responsibilities throughout our interaction. I have no doubt that you are the right man for the job you have. Please be assured that you have a family here in beautiful South Africa – all because we were treated with deserving respect in your capable hands.
Keep well as we hope to see you soon here in beautiful South Africa.
