    Turning down recommendation

    I recently e-mailed a teacher about meeting to write a recommendation, but she seems busy. Another teacher told me she could write a recommendation, so how should I tell the other teacher that I don't need a letter of recomendation anymore? I don't want to sound rude.
    Thank you!

    Re: Turning down recommendation

    Dear Ms. Smith/Mr. Jones,
    Thank you so much for your offer to write me a letter of recommendation. As it happens, I have already completed the application that required the letter, so I do not need a letter at this time. I hope I may keep you in mind for a future reference, if the situation arises. I truly appreciate your generosity.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
