Dear Jean,
I wanted to write you a note to thank you. I am sorry that you felt disappointed that your work responsibilities were not what you expected. I have enjoyed having your assistance with my projects.

Although the tasks we handled were not as varied as you would have liked, just think about what you and I have accomplished since September. We organized the annual small business conference, updated the association's web site, and answered scores of inquiries, many in great detail, from business owners who needed advice on a range of topics: loans, benefits, licensing, etc.

I feel the year has been very productive for both of us. You've been an congenial and conscientious assistant and all of us have the highest regard for your abilities. Please feel free to call upon me for a recommendation if you require one for future employment.
Best of luck,
Thomas

Book review.

Quote
A History of Sports from Ancient Times to the Present
By Rebecca Jean Porter
Illustrated, 248 pp.
Oakview Press, Westport, CT $32.95

Rebecca Jean Porter, the author of Olympic Dreams, has attained another perfect score in this engaging and readable history. A History of Sports from Ancient Times to the Present covers everything from sporting events in ancient Rome to the origins of teams sports in North America, and it includes a section on sports played on contemporary university campuses. I highly recommend the chapter with detailed instructions on how to play games that had previously been lost over time. Porter's comprehensive introduction and bibliography, as well as the time line of dates and events, make this a reference work that should be purchased by all public libraries. An online companion volume will be published next year.

-- Andrew Huff

What does Andrew Huff suggest about the book?
(A) It is not as good as Olympic Dreams.
(B) It does not cover previous centuries in detail.
© It is a well-written work.
(D) It is currently available online.

What is NOT mentioned as being included in the book?
(A) Names of reference sources
(B) A listing of historical dates
© A thorough opening section
(D) A schedule of local sporting events

For what group is the book particularly recommended?
(A) Community libraries
(B) University students
© Sports centers
(D) Sports players
