A letter of appreciation is a letter expressing gratitude and thanks to an individual for some good work performance or service rendered. It could be a formal letter if it is written between business associates; it could be informal if the letter is between friends or family who are close to one another.

Dear Ms. Mather
RE: In Appreciation
Thank you so much for your consent to be listed as one of my referees on my recent job application for the post of Finance Consultant with a private firm.
I am happy to inform you that I have been successful with the said vacancy. My new employment was very impressed by your recommendation of me. I was blushing when your good points of me were read out from your letter of recommendation. I did not know that you had written such a favorable recommendation for me.
I am truly appreciative of your kind words. I was always respectful of you while working under your skilled and fair management. If not for a wider work exposure, I would have stayed on under your tutelage. Thank you so much for your past guidance and mentoring.
I wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
Thank you again.
