Dear [Recipients Name],

I have just completed reading your article on recycling, as published by the York News this week. It was an exceptionally well-written article and created many interesting suggestions on the subject.

I particularly liked the fact that it was an objective look at the issue, pointing out the advantages and disadvantages of recycling.

I would like to thank you for both a well researched and well-written article.

Sincerely,

[Senders Name]
