Sample letter

Dear Mr. Roy

Thank you for offering me the position of Sales Manager for which I recently interviewed. I discussed this matter with my current employer and they have expressed an interest in retaining me. In fact, they have even offered me a promotion as Area Vice President. It is a great opportunity (which came as a complete surprise) and I do not want to pass it up. Therefore, I must decline your kind offer. I hope you understand my situation.

Thank you for your confidence in my abilities and all the courtesies extended to me. I really enjoyed our brief interaction.
