Dear [Recipients Name],

I am writing to you today to request an acknowledgment letter for our previous conversation last Saturday while we had our lunch meeting.

I need an acknowledgment letter which is signed by you to give to my boss who is asking for a formal written account of what had transpired during our meeting.

I hope that you can provide me with such a letter so I will be able to make my report to my boss as soon as possible.
