    I think attribute is too formal in a letter of thanks. For example,

    I attribute my quick recovery to your care.

    How to correct it?

    I owe my quick recovery to your care. (Not exactly the same, but probably close enough)
    I believe your care is responsible for my quick recovery.
    You could use 'attribute'. It's the thought that counts in this sort of thing.

    My quick recovery was made possible by your care.
    Thanks to your care, my recovery was quick.
