My husband says we need to write a thank you note to one of his colleagues who helped get our son admitted a prestigious school on scholarship. He may well have gotten in on his own, but Bill insists that I write a handwritten letter. We were also contemplating sending him a gift such as a case of wine, but we cannot afford a Premier Cru. What should we do?

- State the good deed and why the school is a good fit for your child.
- In closing, include the names of your wife and the child in your final expression of gratitude: Alice and George join me in thanking you for taking the time to assist in the admissions process.
