    Unhappy S did not... but...

    I did not say thank you to him in person, but I wrote him a thank you note.

    Can I express the same thing using:
    I did not say thank you to him in person but wrote/write him a thank you note.

    Which one is correct?

    I would rephrase that as: "I did not thank him in person, but I wrote him a thank-you note."
