Dear Mr. Freedman:

Richard Whiting has forwarded your resume to my attention for consideration by the Hiring Committee.  Thank you for your interest in Steptoe & Johnson.

Your record is a fine one, but we are simply hearing from many more well-qualified people than we can possibly accommodate this year.  I am, therefore, sorry that I cannot invite you to the firm for interviews.

I regret that I cannot give you a more positive response, but thank you again for your interest in our firm.

Sincerely,

Morgan D. Hodgson

Dear Mr. Freedman:

Thank you for your letter of February 7, enclosing your resume which was referred to me as Chairman of the Hiring Committee by Larry Hoffman. After reviewing and fully discussing your inquiry concerning employment and our staffing needs, we have reluctantly concluded that we are unable to explore further the matter of employment with you.

With the experience and credentials you present, it is difficult for us to have to decline the opportunity to discuss employment with you. At the same time, it is obvious that someone with your qualifications will have little difficulty in finding any number of challenging and rewarding opportunities.

We do appreciate your interest in our firm. We wish you the very best in your future endeavors.

Sincerely,

AKIN, GUMP, STRAUSS, HAUER & FELD
