本文

Dear Mr. Yamaguchi: I find it rather difficult to answer your e-mail about Kenji Nakamura. I like him personally but in fairness I cannot recommend him to you. Without a doubt Kenji Nakamura is a talented young man. He was a bomb maker with us for over a year and he certainly knows his business and can do a fine job when he wants to. But that’s where his difficulty arrives - he does not always want to. Instead, he starts to drink and then he becomes very undependable. He will literally walk out of the job for a period of time and let somebody else take over. In fact, that is why he is no longer employed with us. These facts really distress me because Kenji Nakamura is very talented and has great ability. In fact, he would probably be one of the best bomb makers if he did not drink. Perhaps if you discussed the situation with him and told him that he would be fired if he drank, that might make a difference. I think this would be a worthwhile approach because he has so much to offer. If I can answer any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Respectfully,
