Dear Sirs,

     This is the reply to your inquiry letter dated December 1st.
(Your question was "Are you going to quit xxxxx (company name) ?
If you are not going to quit there, please submit the employment
certificate to confirm your position retained until your return.")

     I have already quit xxxxx (company name) on the end of November.

     I had to quit my job because I could not get the permission
to resume my position after such a long absence. I shall return to
Japan and regain job as a xxxx xxxxxxxx at another company after
my completion of study abroad.

     Although I did worked at the time I made the application for
the Student Authorization on November 22, I've missed to inform you
that I was going to quit my job within some weeks. This is my
mistake and I sincerely apologize for this.

     I am so sorry to have troubled you.


                                                      Very truly yours,

                                                            XXXX XXXXX

                                                           (Signature)

                                              (File Number: Sxxxxxxxxx)
