Dear Sir,

I refer to the agreement dated 7th May, 1965, under which I was employed by your company for a period which expired on the 30th June 1966. Since that date I have continued to be employed by the company. I now wish to terminate my employment with the company and accordingly give you notice to terminate my said employment with effect from the 30th November, 1966.

Your faithfully.
