As discussed today, due to a change in my circumstances I wish to formally retract my resignation from Greens Real Estate. Please accept this letter as withdrawal of my resignation letter dated 6 September 2014.

I look forward to continuing work with Greens Real Estate and apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.

Thank you for your understanding and discretion.

Yours sincerely

FYI Cc stands for ‘carbon copy’ from the days before computers when duplicates of correspondence were made with carbon paper – the carbon copy could be sent to another person so they had exactly the same information as the person receiving the original.
