"Thank you, Robert, for
the careful and expediant editorial work you did on my Ph.D.
dissertation. As I made corrections, I came to appreciate your ability
to hear my voice and to suggest corrections appropriate to my style,
pacing, and vocabulary. In cases where my work became too redundant,
your alternatives added the needed turn to keep the reader's attention.
My external reader, in particular, remarked at the readability of the
thesis--an accolade for which you may take some well-deserved credit."
"Again, I want to take this chance to
thank you for your great technical editing work."

"I selected you over so
many others for several reasons. Mainly, you were a real person,
meaning you could be reached by telephone and you had an address.
When I spoke with you I felt comfortable. You put me at ease and
I immediately had confidence in you. I think the most important reason
was I did not have to worry about you rewriting and selling parts of my
thesis. You really have a lot to offer. If I can be of
service, please do not hesitate to ask."
