Subject: Thank you for the informational interview, from Roger Pickford

Dear Mr. Lennard,
I hope that someday I can repay you for the time you spent with me yesterday. I appreciate your generosity of information—you have given me much to consider as I inch my way toward a career in journalism.

The writer’s conference you mentioned is coming up soon. I will attend the seminars, poke my nose around a little more within the business, and keep in mind your offer for a second interview.

Again, thank you very much for your support!
Roger Pickford
